Entrepreneurship

As an Entrepreneurship student, you will learn the process of discovering, evaluating and pursuing opportunities such as:

  • Starting new organizations: for-profit or not-for-profit
  • Designing new products or services
  • Solving problems, creating fresh ideas, innovating new solutions

Opportunity to Innovate

In addition to entrepreneurship, you will receive rigorous training in management, marketing, finance, accounting, business law and management information systems. Outside the classroom, you have the opportunity to join the Bradley chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO), where students meet and network with student entrepreneurs and successful founders of high-growth firms.

You can also be involved in Enactus, a social entrepreneurship organization, which encourages students to take the business skills they learn in the classroom and put them into practice on campus, in the community and beyond.
