If you are reading this, you recognize the importance of understanding business, people, money, leadership, and getting a job, but students curious about Entrepreneurship & Innovation also tend to envision more for themselves than ‘just a degree.’ You are willing to work hard and you want your work to matter. You seek impact and fulfillment, professionally and personally…even if you are not quite sure what your career will look like yet. Welcome. We are looking for people like you. This world is increasingly dynamic, global and technology-driven. Entrepreneurship & Innovation is made for these times.
Forbes magazine states, an “Entrepreneurial Mindset is not the same as a management mindset. The attitudes and skills required to build useful products and services are distinct from those required to maintain those same things.”

- Mindset for taking initiative and the self-management to complete tasks.
- Decision-making with evidence-based data and analytical reasoning in alignment with values.
