CMU offers one of the most comprehensive undergraduate curricula available in Entrepreneurship under the Bachelor of Applied Arts Degree. Students may earn a major or a minor in Entrepreneurship.
The Entrepreneurship degree offers a cross-disciplinary foundation of entrepreneurship and innovation that develops the skills needed to start a business, to acquire and lead a business, and to work effectively within a business. Students learn their own aptitude for entrepreneurship, find and evaluate business opportunities, learn lean start-up techniques, financial management, legal aspects of a business, marketing strategies, and how to launch a venture.
Students begin their studies with Discovering the Entrepreneur Within (ENT 101) and Entrepreneurship Launch Pad (ENT/MGT 201) in their Freshman year and finish with Launching a Venture (ENT 495) in their senior year. An internship is also required. Refer to the Student Bulletin for specific details of the academic requirements or visit our academic advisor, Penny Woelfert in Grawn 164.
