Entrepreneurship

SCHOOL OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION

BS Entrepreneurship

The B.S. in Entrepreneurship program is designed to engage students to think entrepreneurially while they learn how to execute their vision efficiently and effectively. Entrepreneurship majors will learn how to prepare and execute a comprehensive strategy for launching a new venture. The venture can be in any organizational context – large or small, new or existing, non-profit or for-profit. The entrepreneurial process of value creation through innovation remains the same regardless of the context or the ultimate goal.

Students will interact extensively with the business community both inside and outside the classroom and produce a plan that is both defensible to potential investors and actionable in the real world.
