Our new Center of Excellence is infusing entrepreneurship into every student's experience. We instill in all business students the entrepreneurial mindset that will empower them as graduates, whether they are launching businesses or facing innovation challenges within existing companies. That means being able to recognize and seize outstanding opportunities to solve problems and create value.

The Center includes an ideation suite and a maker space for creating, inventing and learning.

The Louis D. Mallet Entrepreneurship Zone is an inspirational, collaborative and creative environment that is perfect for promoting idea generation, group learning, problem solving and business planning. The space is rich in technology and includes writeable glass boards that enhance conversation and discussion.
