Top Entrepreneurship Colleges

Entrepreneurship majors study the theory and practice behind starting your own business, taking over an existing family business, or become an effective manager in a growing business. Along the way, you will take courses such as: Statistical Inference in Management, Financial Accounting, Analytical Methods for Business, Microeconomics Analysis for Business Decisions, and New Venture Development and Industry Analysis.

Earning a degree in entrepreneurship will prepare students to launch or manage a small or growing business in just about any industry you can imagine.

What do you need to make it in an Entrepreneurship program?

Entrepreneurship majors should have solid oral and written communication abilities, computer skills, creativity, and the gift of persuasion. Once in the field, you will need to forge strong working relationships with customers, suppliers, financers, creditors, investors, and employees as you work on establishing and growing your business. To help prepare you, your college program will demand a good number of group projects.

Your Entrepreneurship College Checklist:

  • Do the professors have connections in the business community?
  • Does the program include hands-on learning opportunities such as internships or co-ops?
  • Does the program focus on your specific needs? (i.e., you are taking over your parents' trucking business and have targeted interests.)
  • What are recent or postgraduates doing now?
  • Are there strong alumni networks?
  • Pay special attention to the cost of the school and the potential debt incurred. You will want to be as debt-free as possible in order to get loans and start your career on solid financial footing.
