Program Overview

The entrepreneurial management major is designed for students who are interested in concepts related to starting and growing a business. Additionally, when combined with another business major, this major will help a student develop an entrepreneurial perspective relevant to any field. Students learn the process for new product or service concept generation, feasibility analysis and implementation as well as gain understanding in the leadership and management qualities of entrepreneurs.

The minor is designed for students that are not business students but have an interest in entrepreneurship. The minor addresses the role of entrepreneurship in the current economy, the nature of entrepreneurial organizations, and the demands and rewards of life as an entrepreneur. The minor will be beneficial for students who wish to further their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills as well as develop skills should they wish to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor.

The entrepreneurship concentration will give students within the business college as well as those from across campus the opportunity to understand the fundamentals of entrepreneurship while developing their entrepreneurial passion within their field of interest.
