About the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies
“Built by Entrepreneurs for Future Entrepreneurs”
The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Stillman School of Business was formed in 2003 through an endowment from Frank Scott ’50, a New Jersey entrepreneur and alumnus, and his wife, Marilyn.
The Center was created to raise student awareness of self-employment as a career option and fosters the collaboration of faculty, students, alumni and entrepreneurs to engage in activities that advance hands-on entrepreneurial learning. The Center is integral to the Stillman School's mandate to prepare students for careers in the 21st century by acknowledging the growing importance of entrepreneurship in the U.S. and global economy.
