Entrepreneurial Studies is designed to develop leaders for the 21st Century by leveraging the analytical and critical thinking skills of a liberal arts education. We provide our students with the conceptual understanding, skills, and ethical foundations necessary for social, global, or private sector leadership. Our program empowers students to be capable of creating new enterprises or to be powerful agents of change within existing organizations. Practical skills taught include technical writing, oral presentation, Microsoft Excel for accounting and data visualization, networking, and teamwork.
Core courses in this interdisciplinary minor explore the foundations of entrepreneurial leadership, economic principles, and quantitative tools, and new venture creation. These core courses are supplemented by electives, both within the program and in other departments. All students must complete a senior capstone (i.e., new venture creation) course that requires students to identify and tackle a real-life challenge in the social, economic, and global environment.
