B.B.A. with Major in Entrepreneurship
The Entrepreneurship Major is designed to help prepare students for effective new venture creation and management. Students majoring in Entrepreneurship will pursue in-depth study of the needs of new and emerging ventures and existing businesses, using an entrepreneurial focus. Additionally, Entrepreneurship majors are challenged to pursue development of their own business ideas and opportunities. While it is not expected that all students in the Entrepreneurship major will establish new ventures immediately upon graduation, there is reason to believe that eventually, many Entrepreneurship graduates will start their own businesses.
Our program also allows students to tailor their class choices to fit their individual goals as entrepreneurial thinkers, with several elective options built-in to the course of study. With the flexibility of our program, Entrepreneurship also makes a great double-major option for other business students looking to expand their horizons.
Students may be admitted to the College of Business & Public Administration and may elect a major within a business discipline after completing at least 60 semester hours at UND or other accredited institutions.
They must also have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (2.0 is C) in all courses attempted and a “C” or better in the six courses comprising a sophomore-level pre-business core.
Students planning to transfer to UND from a junior college should enroll in only those junior college business courses that are offered as freshman or sophomore level courses at UND.
Goal 1: Students will be able to recognize, construct, and analyze feasible entrepreneurial venture concepts.
Students will learn the seemingly simple yet profound difference between product ideas and viable business opportunities.
Students will learn to develop and present venture plans supported by compelling data.
Students will learn to present venture plans convincingly.
