AACSB Accredited, our students are encouraged to understand entrepreneurship from global, national, local, and individual firm level perspectives and to learn the dynamics through which innovative individuals and teams recognize opportunity and decide to take action to create, finance, grow, staff, lead, motivate, and sustain their new ventures to create wealth and to enrich the world. 

Through the program requirements, students are infused with authentic information, valid conceptual frameworks and reliable models, and an emphasis on innovation and venture effectiveness using entrepreneurial problems, cases, and project-based learning. Students apply their knowledge, skills and values through faculty coordinated project-based learning experiences and course-based opportunities to engage in learning with individual entrepreneurs and their new and growing ventures.

Certificate Programs

In addition to the Bachelor of Science degree, the Rohrer College of Business offers several certificate programs entrepreneurship majors may be interested in.  The Certificate of Undergraduate Studies: Global Business will provide students with a broader understanding of the impact of a global economic environment on business functions.  Students will have a thorough understanding of the interdependencies between the functional/skill area of business when working in a global market.
