Center of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

We've got a new name! The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies is now the Center of Innovation and Entrepreneurship! Today, entrepreneurship – and what we do—encompasses so much more than when the Stillman School of Business launched its entrepreneurship program 17 years ago. Our name change acknowledges the broader role of innovation and entrepreneurial skills in our lives and in our futures. Whether our students desire to launch a company or work for a large corporation, it is the innovators and problem solvers – the true entrepreneurs- who create new ideas, products and services that better our society.

The Center of Innovation and Entrepreneurship fosters the collaboration of faculty, students, alumni and entrepreneurs through an array of initiatives that advance entrepreneurial learning at Seton Hall University. Learn More »

Academic Programs

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.
