Entrepreneurship Concentration

Entrepreneurship Concentration 

There are five concentrations to choose from within Management, which all share the same 6 Management Core classes. That gives students time to decide which concentration best fits their goals - Business Administration, Entrepreneurship, Global Business, Human Resources, or Supply Chain.

The Entrepreneurship concentration allows students to develop the skills needed to start and own a business, to develop or grow an existing company, or to create an entrepreneurial environment within an organization. Entrepreneurial students are not only prepared to run a business, they are trained to innovate within existing organizations to increase productivity and performance. Students are encouraged to develop creative and impactful solutions by thinking critically about problems relevant to a variety of organizations, and continually practice and hone these skills through hands-on engagement in real-world exercises and projects.

How is our Program Structured?

Students in the Management program take the required general education courses from the University and foundations and career preparation courses within the Gordon Ford College of Business. Each student must also take 18 hours of specific Management courses to help them in deciding their area of concentration. Students then take 27 hours dedicated to pursuing their concentration in business administration, entrepreneurship, global business, human resource management, or supply chain. This allows students maximum flexibility in choosing their degree program, while also providing substantial training to ensure our graduates are career ready.
