Accounting, B.S., Entrepreneurship Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Entrepreneurship program is a concentration that can be earned only when completing the major requirements for any of the business administration program majors including accounting, economics, finance, management, management information systems, and marketing. The concentration is designed to inform, inspire, and empower students to engage in entrepreneurial thinking and related activities. Such activities range from using critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving as a future employee within an existing enterprise as an Intrapreneur; to solving broader social and economic problems deploying entrepreneurial thinking in communities through Social Entrepreneurship; and to being an active participant in the creation of a business start-up. Entrepreneurship effectively blends theory with practice to create a meaningful and relevant value proposition, taking into account both risk and return, that integrates a number of different academic perspectives, such as economics, philosophy, law, finance, politics, and marketing, together. There is also a minor in Entrepreneurship that can be earned with any bachelor’s degree (Entrepreneurship Minor ).

Major Requirements:


Students wishing to qualify for the Certified Public Accountant certification should consult with his or her advisor and the website of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to determine the state-specific requirements for the certification and map out a plan to meet these requirements through their individual program of study.
