Be Your Own Boss.
Students in the Entrepreneurship major of the Jay Sidhu School of Business and Leadership will experience the creation and recognition of opportunities, develop those opportunities, act on opportunities, create value, and give back to society. As a Sidhu student, you begin this process in your freshman year when your team conceptualizes, designs, and operates your own business. Your exposure to business tasks builds during the next three years and culminates with your completion of a senior internship.
The Sidhu School faculty designed a program
to enhance the development and nurturance of emotional intelligence and leadership potential in our undergraduate students, based on the faculty’s own experiences with the qualities of a successful businessperson.
Your faculty has been involved in the launch, growth, and management of their own ventures. As entrepreneurs they have been immersed in nearly every area of managing a business.
Entrepreneurship students have the opportunity:
- to become involved with Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE), a non-profit organization that encourages students to apply classroom learning to real-life situations. The student teams teach such topics as entrepreneurship and personal finance through educational outreach projects;
- to compete in business plan competitions to validate and raise start-up funding for their own ventures
