The Entrepreneurship concentration focuses on the creation of social and economic value by developing core capabilities of idea generation, opportunity recognition, resource acquisition, and entrepreneurial management. Entrepreneurship students will learn to shape entrepreneurial opportunities, assess financial feasibility, while living an entrepreneurial experience.
This experience includes forming teams, constructing business models, talking with partners and customers, assessing feasibility, while launching a new venture or initiative. The skills and competencies gained in an Entrepreneurship concentration are vital for the success of any business or organization including nascent startup, corporation, family, nonprofit, global, franchise, or any other setting. Entrepreneurship concentrators will apply Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® both academically as well as in real world settings. The concentration also provides customized paths for students wishing to specialize in general retail or service, technology, social/nonprofit, family, global, or corporate settings.
