The Entrepreneur of the Year Award is presented by the Donald McNeely Center for Entrepreneurship. Their webite describes the award as a "celebration of the most influentual and successful Entrepreneur alumni/ae of Saint John's University and the College of Saint Benedict."

Separate awards are given each year for one CSB and one SJU graduate "who best exemplifies the ideals of entrepreneurship by starting and successfully managing one or more businesses in a way that demonstrates notable entrepreneurial characteristics and achievements while practicing Benedictine values in the workplace and their lives."

There is also one Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award, given to either a CSB or an SJU graduate "who best exemplifies the ideals of social entrepreneurship by starting and successfully managing one or more ventures that enriches humanity or addresses a social issue in a way that demonstrates notable entrepreneurial characteristics and achievements while practicing Benedictine values in the workplace and in their lives."
