Entrepreneurship and Family Business Major

We designed the major in Entrepreneurship and Family Business according to world-class standards to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to prepare our students for a career as autonomous entrepreneurs, family-business owners, or innovators in new ventures.

The focus on entrepreneurship and family business studies provides the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial talents while providing a solid intellectual foundation to confront the challenges facing a business owner.  The study plan includes courses from different business areas such as management, finance, legal expertise, innovation, and human resources management to help students to prepare for a leadership role in a family business or as an entrepreneur.

Courses in the major have an experiential learning perspective; by using case studies and experiential activities, students will have the opportunity to develop their business acumen under the guidance of their instructors.
