In the Entrepreneurship Concentration, students develop their entrepreneurial mindset in a way that fits their individual interests and ambitions. They learn the knowledge and skills needed to create a new business, to start a new social enterprise, launch a new venture in a corporate setting, and or refresh an existing enterprise.
Entrepreneurship Concentration Requirements:
Students concentrating in Entrepreneurship must maintain an average GPA of 2.5 or higher in their concentration courses. Given the multidisciplinary nature of entrepreneurship, all students pursing a concentration in Entrepreneurship are required to have an additional concentration in any field. Students who are launching businesses before graduation may apply for a waiver from the department chair of this requirement.
