Entrepreneurship - Program Description

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 mindset and/or new venture. Students 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 develop the knowledge and skills that serve as a springboard for students 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. Visit us online at
