Entrepreneurship Major & Minor

Management Studies

Entrepreneurship focuses on the creation of social and economic value by developing core capabilities of idea generation, opportunity recognition, resource acquisition, and entrepreneurial management. These capabilities draw upon multi-disciplinary experiences that include forming teams, constructing business models, talking with partners and customers, and assessing feasibility while launching a new venture or initiative. The skills and competencies gained by studying entrepreneurship are vital for the success of any business or organization including nascent startups, corporations, family businesses of any size, nonprofits, or franchises.

The Entrepreneurship Major integrates the knowledge and experiences gained in the field of entrepreneurship and other disciplines into an understanding of the process of new venture creation and the management of entrepreneurial businesses. You will receive both the breadth and depth of skills necessary to understand the strategic challenges facing a firm; to identify, analyze and pursue new growth opportunities; and to communicate effectively with critical stakeholders in order to mobilize the support necessary for the creation of new products and services and/or the creation of one’s own company. The Entrepreneurship Major is designed to add value by preparing you with conceptual and functional skills that are vital for your future career in any business or organization.

The Major and Minors may be declared through the LSBE Advising & Academic Services Office.
