Entrepreneurship - Integrative Pathway

One of the College’s greatest strengths is its strong tradition of interdisciplinary education. In this environment, an entrepreneurship pathway fits perfectly; entrepreneurship requires and makes use of a very broad set of skills and interests, both academic and professional.

Entrepreneurship is hard to define and one’s path in entrepreneurship – and therefore through this pathway – will be very individually determined based on one’s interests. At its core, entrepreneurship is about creating value by inventing things to address necessities (pain points). In this way, it is about designing something for a target group (market). Entrepreneurial intervention is fundamentally about people – who’s doing the entrepreneurship and to whom it is being done. Entrepreneurship offers students intangible growth in learning how to empathize with others, including those from very different backgrounds, to address a social issue in a flexible, adaptable, and context-relevant way. Of key importance will be considering the diversity and quality of potential guiding questions that could be posed by students and how the Pathway will support those learning goals. Entrepreneurship has directly observable, tangible professional applications, and offering the chance to study entrepreneurship would reinforce the College’s commitment and strength in providing value beyond college, particularly through The Office of Career and Professional Development.
