Increasingly recognized as an important driver for both the national and international economy, entrepreneurship is more than the creation of a new business venture. Rather, entrepreneurship encompasses seeking opportunity, identifying and acknowledging risk and most importantly, persisting until the idea becomes reality.
At Quinnipiac University, we believe that this perspective can be developed in our students and that they can utilize their entrepreneurial perspective for the purpose of realization of innovative ideas in a variety of settings including profit and not-for-profit organizations, new and existing ventures, and in business and non-business activities. Moreover, we view the development of this perspective as having special relevance for the small business environment that many of our students seek upon graduation.
The department offers both a major and a minor in entrepreneurship and small business management.
