B.S. in Entrepreneurship

Imagination is the key to innovation, of course, but what about the more practical aspects like creating a business plan, securing investors, and establishing a growth strategy?

The Entrepreneurship program will provide you everything you need to develop your original ideas into new ventures – and to help them succeed.

Not only will you create a business plan in class, you’ll present it to real investors who – along with your professors – will work with you to better understand existing and emerging markets.

You’ll also hear from alumni who have launched their own businesses and have the opportunity to intern with the start-ups and creative minds behind ventures like 25 Park Instagram Project, Pop Up Yoga NYC, and The Gallery 13.
