In recognition of the role entrepreneurship plays in the economic development of the nation, the entrepreneurship major focuses on the process of new venture creation, risks and rewards of entrepreneurship, identification and exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities, and the managerial skills and important interrelationships between business functions (e.g., finance, marketing, management, human resources, and accounting) that are required for successful entrepreneurship.

The major in Entrepreneurship requires 27 credits beyond the General Education and Earl G. Graves School of Business & Management requirements.  The 12 credits of required Entrepreneurship courses are: ENTR 351 , ENTR 352  , ENTR 380  , and ENTR 452 .  Students can choose credits of electives as follows from among the following courses: ENTR 353  , ENTR 360  , ENTR 361  , ENTR 384  , ENTR 386  , ENTR 388 , ENTR 450 , ENTR 457  and from one of the following courses: FIN 344 ,  one 300-400 level course in Business Administration, one 300-400 level course in Management or one 300-400 level course in Marketing. The 3 credit GSBM elective must be any 300-400 level course within the School of Business and Management.
