Residential Programs

The Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship (BSE) provides extensive training in how to develop and assess the feasibility of new business ideas; plan for the creation of a new enterprise; obtain physical, human, and financial resources; and operate and expand a small enterprise once created. The program provides the flexibility for students to develop the types of businesses they wish to pursue. 

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) with a major in entrepreneurship  places emphasis on teaching you how to think creatively so that you may work within small or large business firms or go into business for yourself. The program takes a practical hands-on approach under the direction of a faculty composed of entrepreneurs.

A minor in entrepreneurship is also offered for both business and non-business majors.

Online Programs

The B.S.B.A degree with a major in entrepreneurship is also offered as a distance degree program which allows students to take all of the required business and entrepreneurship courses 100% online.  This degree completion program is designed to serve students who wish to finish their undergraduate degree but who are unable to attend courses on campus.  Students typically enter the program following completion of a 2-year degree at a community college or with an equivalent number of credits.
