Our practical and experiences faculty have developed a program designed to equip students with a mix of entrepreneurial skills, along with a strong business foundation provided by the College of Business & Public Administration core courses. Our program focuses on reasoning, creativity, testing, and critical thinking skills valued by the most successful entrepreneurs and companies in business today. These skills make it possible to not only start a business, but make significant contributions to existing companies.
Our courses are taught by entrepreneurial instructors with over 50 years of combined business experience in service, retail, international, manufacturing, and social enterprises. The Entrepreneurship program has nationally ranked and recognized for its courses, facilities, faculty, and ability to link our student’s education to real-world practices.
We view entrepreneurial thinking as a learnable and manageable process, and seek to teach that process in small classes with one-on-one engagement between faculty and students.
