Program Description

The Division of Management, Marketing & MIS offers a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Entrepreneurship, as well as a minor in Entrepreneurship.  In addition, the Entrepreneurship program is structured to optionally allow double-major aspirants to concurrently satisfy two degree programs.

Entrepreneurship is an interdisciplinary program that incorporates the business disciplines of management, finance, accounting, economics, marketing, and legal environment and the various disciplines of science, engineering, and psychology.  Students benefit from the entrepreneurship major or minor through the utilization of multiple disciplines and approaches to creativity, innovation, opportunity recognition, risk management, sourcing capital, and preparing for succession and/or harvesting opportunities in an experiential and student-centered learning environment.
