Concentration in Entrepreneurship

The concentration in Entrepreneurship offers an interdisciplinary approach to undergraduate entrepreneurial studies drawing upon the skills necessary to innovate new opportunities and to proceed with those opportunities through development, financing, and operationalizing the innovation. Students will further develop effective communication skills with a focus upon "selling" business opportunities in both oral presentation and written form from development of a written business plan and oral presentation that present and justify the success and sustainability of the identified opportunity.

Through the series of required courses which include hands on learning opportunities utilizing the case method, students develop the knowledge and skills that will serve as the starting point for students who wish to start, run, or grow their own personal or family owned business. They will also develop the motivation and collaborative spirit to engage in innovative idea development in larger organizations. The concept of innovation and engagement also requires an understanding of and appreciation for the societal impact of innovation and working for the common good of all the stakeholders involved as well as society.
