About the Center

Center for Entrepreneurship

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.

Theresa Welbourne Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship

Information for Students

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.
