Ready to start your own business? First you have to know how

You'll apply your extensive skills to real-life situations — like how to build a persuasive business plan and obtain financial capital — and achieve your enterprising goals.

The entrepreneurship minor or specialization complements any management major. Our students go on to start their own businesses and thrive in independent start-ups.

Recent changes to this program will be updated here by late August. Please feel free to contact Todd Herrmann, Undergraduate Program Director, at [email protected], if you have any questions.
