We're bringing together world-class faculty and ambitious students.

"I had all these ideas for starting my own business, but I didn’t know how to make it happen. On the very first day I walked into the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship, they said, 'You need to run with this and we have all these people here that can help you.'"
"It’s not every day that you get to start a business while still in college. But that is exactly what I was encouraged to do. It has been an amazing journey."
"The Lundquist College of Business gave me hands-on experience working with a professional client outside of schoolwork. That really made my résumé stand out."
"The professors really teach you how to get a taste of everything to give you a better idea of what you want to do next."
"At first glance, you might not associate accounting with entrepreneurship. But at my firm, it’s a bit like Shark Tank on a day-to-day basis."
"Accounting is literally the language of business, and if you can’t read those numbers, a business can completely collapse."
"It’s that encouragement to go out and try new things and to really build that foundation for lifelong learning and lifelong relationships. I think that’s very hard to find. I found it at the Lundquist College of Business."
"The UOIG’s portfolio is consistently one of the top-performing collegiate stock portfolios."
"The combination of classes, connections to people in the business community, and the opportunity to participate in internships set me up for success when I graduated."
"The Lundquist College of Business is the perfect place for me, where all my interests come together and I can explore amazing career options."
"If I was to go back to my freshman self and say, 'You’re going to work at events like the Super Bowl, winter and summer Olympic Trials, the NBA All-Star game, the World Series...' I would have laughed at myself."
"Someone once told me if your job doesn’t give you goosebumps, you probably shouldn’t be doing it. And this industry and all of my internships have definitely always given me goosebumps."
