Center for Entrepreneurial Studies
The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies was created in 2003 to raise student awareness of self-employment as a career option. The Center fosters the collaboration of faculty, students, alumni and entrepreneurs to engage in activities and projects that advance hands-on entrepreneurial learning at the Stillman School. The Center offers mentoring and advising to all Seton Hall students who are thinking of starting a business or have launched a business and need assistance to expand their venture.
Students learn about the overall entrepreneurial process and acquire the skills and tools they need to succeed from the launch of a new business to the successful growth of that business. Students are required to complete four 3-credit courses.
