Entrepreneurial Studies Institute

The Entrepreneurial Studies Institute (ESI) provides resources to help aspiring entrepreneurs and seasoned business owners start, manage and grow successful business ventures.  Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of entrepreneurship and the steps required to start a business.  In addition, many students earning a degree in entrepreneurship work with others to identify business opportunities, join entrepreneurial ventures, or work for an established organization.  Entrepreneurship graduates are often in demand by growth-oriented companies wanting to incorporate entrepreneurial vision and innovation in their firms.

  • Entrepreneurship courses, certificates and an associates degree designed to prepare aspiring entrepreneurs for success in business.
