Entrepreneurship is important to the overall economic future of our society, and is a leading area of interest to students. The creation of new products, services and jobs is more dependent upon entrepreneurship today than it has ever been in the past. The importance of entrepreneurship has become more widely acknowledged and understood, generating enormous opportunities for entrepreneurial thinking and considerable interest in the field by students and educators.
The goal of the entrepreneurship emphasis is to assist students in gaining the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become successful entrepreneurs. Students gain an appreciation of the entrepreneur in society, and develop an understanding of how to start and/or manage a business. Courses enable students to create innovative entrepreneurial and small-business ventures.
The entrepreneurship emphasis features courses in
- Management of Small Business and Entrepreneurship
- Preparing a Business Plan and Venture Financing
- Entrepreneurial Experience
- Entrepreneurial Marketing and Economics
