Bachelor of Science - Business & Entrepreneurial Studies

Our Business and Entrepreneurial Studies program emphasizes professional skills and entrepreneurial talents.  Entrepreneurship infuses and inspires the curriculum, from introductory business and marketing courses through capstone courses in entrepreneurship and real world experience.

Successful entrepreneurs are innovators, dreamers and doers.  They are prudent risk takers and persistent and focused problem solvers.  Our program seeks to encourage and develop entrepreneurs and an entrepreneurial culture.

Every Business & Entrepreneurial Studies student completes four introductory courses (12 credit hours) in business, marketing and psychology or sociology, as well as 11 professional courses in accounting, business, economics, management and psychology (33 credit hours).  Each student then chooses one of two nine-credit options in either Small Business & Entrepreneurship or Non-Profit Organization Management.

The Business & Entrepreneurial Studies program provides students technical excellence and entrepreneurial spirit in a small-college atmosphere.
