In addition to overseeing the development and staffing of entrepreneurship courses, the Gary S. Holmes Center for Entrepreneurship leads the implementation of an innovative curriculum. Graduate students can take experiential courses where they work on applied projects with sponsored companies to design new product prototypes and launch new ventures. Undergraduate students can participate in the unique Entrepreneurship in Action course, where they conceive, launch, and operate a real business.

Our courses and programs focus on the following learning outcomes:

1. Experience the entrepreneurial process.

  • Experience the actual process of generating and screening ideas, validating opportunities, developing plans, launching and growing real businesses.

2. Build critical entrepreneurial competencies:

  • opportunity identification

  • problem-solving
  • communication
  • decision-making
  • leadership

3. Develop entrepreneurial mindset.

  • Develop the self-confidence and skills to become an optimistic problem-solver that applies creativity and resourcefulness to discover and realize opportunities.
