Concentration Coordinator: Lynn Metcalf

The goal of the Entrepreneurship concentration is to empower the student to create economic and social value either for a startup or as part of a high-performing entrepreneurial team within an existing organization. A student in the Entrepreneurship concentration will acquire the tools, develop the skills, and cultivate the mindset of an entrepreneur. The Entrepreneurship concentration comprises a carefully-curated set of required and elective courses, leading to a hands-on, balanced and interdisciplinary approach to entrepreneurial leadership that is applicable in for-profit and non-profit contexts; local and global settings; and service-, product-, or technology- based companies.
