Entrepreneurship Major


Program Overview

The goal of the program is to provide students with an in-depth and rigorous study of the field of entrepreneurship. A primary focus is in honing the ability of students to either start a new venture or develop the ability to meaningfully contribute in a corporate entrepreneurial setting.

The economic development of our nation is sparked primarily by the "Entrepreneurial Spirit." This spirit emerges from a very special and unique segment of the population known as entrepreneurs. A continual infusion of new ideas and new energies brought forth by these entrepreneurs is the cornerstone of economic growth in our country. As such, entrepreneurs and their new ventures are of vital importance in the process of economic revitalization.

Success in entrepreneurship requires a broad base of conceptual knowledge, personal skills, and competencies. The required courses ensure a variety of rich developmental experiences that can include applied learning, case analysis, research projects, team-based active learning projects, and guest speakers, in addition to traditional classroom lectures and discussions. This major places a strong emphasis on written and oral communications skills, teamwork, and personal initiative.
