CHANGE THE WORLD WITH YOUR INNOVATIVE IDEAS

Entrepreneurship is much more than starting your own business. It is about creating opportunity from new ideas and solving problems. The entrepreneurship & technology innovation (ENTI) major will empower you by providing the knowledge, skills and connections you need to launch a startup, foster innovation for an established company or develop sustainable solutions to important societal problems.

Technology innovation changes the world by continuously creating new knowledge, disrupting established industries and reshaping career paths. The ENTI major prepares you to adapt and thrive amidst this rapid change.

You will learn to recognize opportunity, generate ideas, validate business models, influence others, bring innovative technologies to market and launch and grow new ventures.

The ENTI curriculum gives you first-hand experience with the processes of launching new products, businesses and social ventures into the marketplace. Co-curricular opportunities enrich the program by helping you gain additional experience, make valuable connections and benefit from supportive resources.
