What we do
The Entrepreneurship Program led by the Isabella Bank Institute of Entrepreneurship (IBIE) educates and shapes budding entrepreneurs through our strong academic
curriculum and practical experiences in the start-up and small business world. We provide tools and perspectives necessary to capitalize on students' entrepreneurial
and intrapreneurial potential to create business ventures or work in a venture.
Students receive a wide range of classroom
and experiential opportunities to learn how to start-up, develop, manage, and
create businesses. We work with both internal resources, academic leaders and external resources to:
- Teach Rich and Practical Skills
- Provoke Innovative Thinking
- Connect with Entrepreneurial Resources such as business accelerators like CMU-RC, and the ecosystem throughout the state of Michigan
