This program prepares students to develop the insight needed to discover and create entrepreneurial opportunities and the expertise to successfully start and manage their own businesses to take advantage of these opportunities. Upon completion, students should have the knowledge and skills needed to assess new enterprise opportunities, obtain financial resources, market and start new ventures, and manage entrepreneurial ventures for growth and profitability. Individuals who already own and operate their own businesses acquire the background necessary to upgrade skills and broaden their areas of expertise. In addition, the interdisciplinary aspects of the program offer students training to complement their major field of study with an additional concentration in entrepreneurship.
Students must demonstrate college-level proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics as prerequisites for courses in this program. Skills in these areas may affect the sequence of courses in which students can enroll and may also extend the time required to complete this program. For more details see the Academic Placement and Testing section.
