The Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation prepares graduates for three career paths: to start a business sooner rather than later, join a family enterprise and take it to the next level, and become an entrepreneur within a large organizational setting. Students are engaged in entrepreneurial activities starting in their freshmen year by starting a small on-campus business, participating in activities such as elevator pitch competitions, and other hands-on activities. These help build self-confidence and business acumen and prepares graduates for a world of possibility.
