Selecting a concentration in entrepreneurship provides students with a mindset and professional training to identify new business opportunities and the ability to implement them—either within existing companies or as startups.
Coming up with the idea is the easy part. The real entrepreneurial challenge begins with determining an idea’s feasibility, defining an implementable business model, and commanding the resources to turn a plan into a successful enterprise. The Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship helps guide students through the entrepreneurial process at the undergraduate level through courses supporting the entrepreneurship concentration. We also support business minors interested in starting their own business through advice and guidance on the startup ventures. Students are strongly advised to begin the entrepreneurship sequence as early in their junior year as possible.

Real-world, live-fire experiences give students the courage to expand their comfort zones by focusing on skills that build presentations and the ability to critically defend their ideas. Experiential, hands-on learning opportunities are a hallmark of the Lundquist Center. Through such immersive learning, students participate in their own business ventures while receiving open and honest feedback from an active and collaborative community of industry advisors, faculty, practicing entrepreneurs, and alumni.
