The Entrepreneurship major prepares students by developing skills and behaviors related to recognition of ideas and potential ventures, feasibility evaluation, assembling resources, and launching of new ventures. Students will learn a broad range of competencies including opportunity recognition, applied creativity, small business finance, and business plan and strategy development. Students are exposed to a variety of real-world applications through course embedded projects and field study opportunities. An entrepreneurship major not only prepares students to launch and grow their own business, but equips them with highly transferable skills important to any organizational context, particularly in small and medium-sized enterprises.
