What can you do with a degree in Entrepreneurship?
A variety of studies indicate that recent college graduates are projected to change jobs 9-10 times and careers 4-5 times during their lifetimes. Others indicate that 70% of young people are dissatisfied with their early career choices. Almost all of us will consider some form of entrepreneurial activity as a choice at several points in our careers.
A bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship can open many career doors for students, regardless of economic conditions.
By learning management, financial, marketing and creativity skills, Entrepreneurship majors are prepared for a wide variety of career paths. These include starting a new business or social enterprise to better our world; working in a family business or as part of a team in a startup/nonprofit started by another entrepreneur; developing a new product or launching a new business within a large corporation (also known as “intrapreneurship”); pursuing a career as a venture capitalist, or serving as a legal, accounting or financial advisor to entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Finally, other Entrepreneurship majors may elect to use their unique preparation to attend graduate school.
Wherever they land, students who study entrepreneurship are prepared for the challenges of the real world.
