Entrepreneurship Courses

College of Management

Entrepreneurship is about learning how to see opportunities and create value.

It’s about seeing and solving problems.  It doesn’t mean you have to start a company.  You may be an “intrepreneur” – bringing an entrepreneurial and innovative mindset inside a company. The skills you will learn in these entrepreneurial courses will be valuable in any career.
