The coursework that makes up the four undergraduate options (two majors, two minors) comes out of the Lipscomb College of Business, a highly regarded school that is also home to the Dean Institute for Corporate Governance and Integrity. Consequently, all core business classwork is taught within the context of outstanding business grounding and ethical business practices.

If your professional skills require you to build a business that supports them, you now have the opportunity to major and minor in entrepreneurship. The new Lipscomb Center for Entrepreneurship prepares future physicians, dentists, psychologists, therapists, freelance, small-shop creatives and others to build a solid foundation for their professional success. There are no business prerequisites for the undergraduate minor, and you even have the opportunity to focus your concentration on the growing field of social entrepreneurship.
