The B.A. in Interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship Studies educates tomorrow’s entrepreneurial leaders. Students will acquire a comprehensive set of skills that prepares them for working in small, family-owned companies or large, mature industries such as hospitality, banking, and healthcare. Several large, local businesses currently recruit entrepreneurship students because of the students’ propensity to take initiative and see opportunities where others see problems. Students in entrepreneurship classes regularly engage with both retired and active business owners. These one-on-one interactions make the learning environment more experiential and often lead to employment opportunities.
