A fast-growing hub, our Center for Entrepreneurship brings together students, faculty, and alumni from all three of our schools, as well as industry mentors and friends.
Our venture competition is an opportunity for teams of students to develop an innovative business or nonprofit enterprise and win funding for their venture. Students have the opportunity to work with mentors to develop a business plan, practice pitching their idea, and learn skills necessary to launch their ventures.
We also offer an intensive weeklong seminar, the 2014 Winterim: Principles & Practices of Entrepreneurship, which is held over winter break for those looking to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and skills.
Soon, students wishing to pursue an expanded certificate program in Entrepreneurship and Innovation will be able to complete a selection of core academic courses. In the fall of 2013, we began offering, Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a two-unit course co-taught by Steven Goebel, director of the Business Law Program and Small Business Legal Clinic, and Michael Olich, Associate Professor of Theatre.
Additionally, a range of electives and opportunities for entrepreneurial internships will be developed for all students.
