Expand your entrepreneurial skillset
Interested in learning about creating new enterprises that are sustainable and build value, whether for-profit or not-for-profit?
Entrepreneurship students study in the largest cross-disciplinary program in the U.S., with over 40 courses in 22 departments across UNCG. The program has received multiple national and international awards. The program provides students the opportunity to develop concept models, feasibility studies, business plans, and implementation plans for businesses and innovative ventures across seven areas of study.
Students will learn how to start or grow a business, and to be creative and innovative in any organization. Students will have an opportunity to interview for, and possibly obtain a scholarship for, an internship in entrepreneurship. A minor in entrepreneurship is also available for students wishing to combine this with their current major.
