Business and Innovation at Providence College

Why the Business and Innovation Minor at Providence College?
The business and innovation minor (BIM) at Providence College combines the best of a liberal arts education with contemporary courses in business. This new minor gives non-business majors a fundamental toolkit of valuable business skills, including entrepreneurship and innovation. Interdisciplinary in nature, the BIM offers foundational courses in accountancy, computer science, and art.

Students then choose their own paths from four tracks that are led by accomplished faculty from disciplines that include biology, chemistry, economics, global studies, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. The minor includes four tracks that are intended to engage and challenge you: Organizations and Entrepreneurs, Global Engagement, Applied Science, and Design Thinking. More importantly, they’re intended for you to make connections between business and the liberal arts — an educational journey without limits.

  • If you are interested in declaring a business and innovation minor, please fill out this major/minor declaration form. If you already have declared a major, you must get this form approved by your major’s department chairperson. If you have not yet declared a major, you must get this form approved and signed by your undeclared academic advisor.
  • As there is no code available for business and innovation, simply write the words “Business and Innovation” along with chosen track: “track 1, 2, 3, or 4” in or close to the minors/concentrations boxes. Forward a completed pdf copy of this form to Dr. Eric Sung mastersung@providence.edu or deliver the completed form in person to his mailbox in Hunt Cavanagh for approval. This is only a temporary process. All major and minor declarations will become an online form shortly.
