Building Start-up People . . . for new and established enterprises
"The Center for Entrepreneurship is focused on helping students learn and practice the art and
science of growth. Classes teach students how to grow their own new ventures and how to successfully
team with others who are striving to grow businesses.
We know that not every entrepreneurship
student wants to start his/her own business, the learning experience provides students with the knowledge
and expertise to be a "start-up person," or a team member who can help any new or established organization
be more successful. Students in entrepreneurship are uniquely prepared to be the innovators in any
organization; they lead projects, build teams and develop new products from the idea stage to execution."
"The Center also works with businesses focused on growth. The science of growth is critical to any
organization striving to succeed in today's high-change environment."

The Center offers a variety of courses that enable students to explore the subject of entrepreneurship.
The majority of these classes are taught by individuals who have either started a business or have
been associated with business ownership.
Students can join one or both of our entrepreneurship organizations. Getting involved in these organizations
is a great way to network, gain real-world knowledge, and make an impact in the community.
