Being an entrepreneur isn't just about starting a business. Entrepreneurship is a way of looking at the world. It's about innovative thinking, taking calculated risks, and, most importantly, about being able to recognize and seize outstanding opportunities to solve problems and create value.
As you develop an entrepreneurial mindset, you will envision new ways of doing things. Whatever career you pursue or company you decide to work for, having an entrepreneurial mindset will be essential for your success.
In fact, entrepreneurship skills drive problem-solving and innovation in all areas of business-new ventures, corporations, government, and the nonprofit sector.
Companies of all sizes value Entrepreneurship majors.
You will develop:
- Entrepreneurship skills companies need to create new products, new services and new business opportunities.
- Mindset of an entrepreneurial innovator within an existing company.
- Ability to take an idea, assess its viability and secure the resources needed to launch a new business.
- Business and management insight necessary for growing small businesses.
Entrepreneurship is the ideal complement to majors in functional areas (e.g., marketing, finance, accounting).
