Entrepreneurship - Program Description


Website: www.gvsu.edu/business

The entrepreneurship major is designed to provide students broad, intellectual and practical skills, and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge using skills such as creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration in real world settings to help them develop an entrepreneurial venture. Students will learn to identify opportunities, solve problems, build business strategies, test and validate assumptions, execute, and present. Through a series of courses that include hands on and experiential learning opportunities, students will develop the knowledge and skills that will serve as a springboard for students who wish to start, run, or grow their own personal or family owned business.

Students who pursue the entrepreneurship major are required to complete a second Seidman major in a functional discipline (such as finance, marketing, accounting, etc.) Students should contact the Seidman Undergraduate Student Services Office early in their program for a suggested pattern of coursework.

The following programs are available:

Bachelor of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship
