What Is an Entrepreneurship Degree?

The entrepreneurship major is designed for students who would like to develop and cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset, which will help them to create and recognize opportunities in all facets of their lives. This program is intended for all students, whether they are interested in working for a larger innovative company, starting their own business, working for a family business or creating the life of their dreams.

In addition to courses offered, we host an annual entrepreneurship summit alongside an entrepreneurship competition with cash prizes totaling $50,000.

The entrepreneurship minor exposes non-business majors to entrepreneurship through experiential learning and focuses on the creation of an entrepreneurial mindset.

By pursuing an entrepreneurship minor, students learn tools for success in starting a business or bringing innovation and creativity to an existing business. A primary focus of the minor is allowing the student to tailor their program of study.
