Department of Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship Department seeks to prepare and inspire principled, high-impact entrepreneurs whose innovations improve people’s lives and solve important problems.

We provide a high-caliber academic environment that includes real-world entrepreneurial experience, an idea-generating culture, and an emphasis on ethical decision-making and purposeful living.

Entrepreneurship majors develop valuable, versatile skills including accounting, finance, marketing, technology, strategy, and creative problem-solving abilities. Students learn how to identify and evaluate opportunities. They acquire a framework to conceptualize, finance, launch, manage, and harvest a wide variety of new ventures. These include commercial businesses such as high tech startups as well as not-for-profit enterprises that address urgent human needs. Students may also choose to apply their entrepreneurial knowledge to existing family businesses or elect to create new ventures or products within large corporations.
