A support structure for dreams

It’s a simple fact of business life: most entrepreneurial businesses fail, primarily due to the inexperience of the dreamers who start. The Center for Entrepreneurship intervenes with an environment in which business creativity is shaped by solid business knowledge. Students in Center for Entrepreneurship programs experience what it means to start their own businesses well before graduation. In fact, upon graduation, a student has a finely tuned business plan ready to execute, that has survived student/faculty critique based on the experience of entrepreneurial faculty professionals who have been down the same road.

Business study and more

The center offers a major and minor in two areas. The first is in management with a concentration in entrepreneurship. The second area is the same management course of study but with a concentration in the growing field of social entrepreneurship. What better place to learn business for the common good than at a university known for its service and faith-based commitment to others.

A solid choice for non-business majors as well

Many students in the professional area outside of business will build their careers as solo practitioners and small business owners such as: physicians, dentists, psychologists, therapists, freelance and small-shop creatives. The Center for Entrepreneurship offers an excellent minor to prepare these students for the “business” elements that will support the success of their professional passions. The minor concentrates on how business disciplines integrate with non-business-related professional goals for more “holistic” and well-rounded professional preparation for their post-college years.

The Center is built on Three Pillars:
