Entrepreneurship is at the heart of every business. Every large company started out as a small business, led by an entrepreneur. As our economy becomes more volatile, having the skills and knowledge to start a new business may mean the difference between prosperity and poverty.
Entrepreneurial skills are also in demand in established companies. Every business, large or small, must be entrepreneurial just to survive. Innovative thinking has replaced "do it our way" as the rallying cry of the corporation. Students who learn to think independently flourish in chaotic environments and to keep cool under pressure are in high demand.
The Entrepreneurship Sequence is designed to build entrepreneurial skills step by step. Professors, not graduate students, teach classes. We embody a “hands-on” philosophy of teaching, putting our students into real-life entrepreneurial situations. Our program is rigorous, challenging, and most of all, fun.
