Programs for Students

Entrepreneurship Studies Program – Entrepreneur Scholars:

This undergraduate certificate program begins in the fall of each year with 12 students selected in a competitive application process.  The program is directed and taught by Dr. Paul Marsnik along with three other faculty members. The two year program includes:

  • A 3 course sequence in entrepreneurial studies designed and taught exclusively for this selected group of students.
  • Each Entrepreneur Scholar will have access to at least 10 mentors from business and nonprofit sectors.  Students will meet periodically with successful entrepreneurs and learn about the best practices of entrepreneurship.
  • Entrepreneur Scholars will design a new venture, complete a feasibility plan and begin the ventures most likely to succeed.
  • Entrepreneur Scholars will also travel both nationally and internationally to learn from entrepreneurs.

Increased Classroom Contact with Entrepreneurs:

Alums with entrepreneurial experience will be available for presentations in classes across the disciplines.

Center Mentors:

Volunteers for the center come in and meet individually, with teams or in small groups to give advice, insight and ideas on student ventures. These mentors are also available for site visits, informational interviews and individual advising.  Thank you mentors!
