Developing the knowledge, abilities, and skills needed in the 21st century marketplace and matching those skills to appropriate and successful entrepreneurial enterprises is the goal of the Entrepreneurship Program.

Entrepreneurship

This major is focused on creativity, invention, innovation, and the development of business plans needed to launch and sustain the success of both commercial and social organizations. Students learn how to self-assess their commitment, strengthen their tolerance of ambiguity, expand their creativity, assess critical risks, and seize the sense of urgency in a consistent and on-going manner. Students learn to recognize opportunities, screen ideas and open new markets both domestically and internationally.

Collegiate entrepreneurs receive internal and external instructional and coaching designed to allow them to move effectively through the stages of starting their businesses, forming and growing their enterprises and managing rapid growth, and seeking global opportunities. Students must complete an internship with an entrepreneurship- related organization, and are encouraged to enter their ideas in regional business plan competitions in order to receive valuable feedback and mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs and investors.
