Entrepreneurship Specialization

The specialization in entrepreneurship allows students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to take a leadership role in small and entrepreneurial business. Students in this specialization will be able to gain a broad knowledge of entrepreneurial business issues built upon entrepreneurially focused research in the core business disciplines, including accounting, business law, finance, management, and marketing. The program includesĀ  foundational coursework as well as experiential assignments in which the students work with entrepreneurs to solve real business decisions. This specialization will help broaden the students’ perspective beyond corporate management and enhance their employment prospects by increasing their attractiveness to entrepreneurial firms.

The entrepreneurship specialization is available to undergraduate students admitted to the Eli Broad College of Business in any major other than hospitality business. Students outside the College of Business may not earn this specialization.

Specialization courses can count toward bachelor’s degree requirements. The student’s program of study must be approved by the student’s academic adviser. Courses associated with the online Certificate in Entrepreneurship cannot be used to fulfill requirements for the entrepreneurship specialization.


To complete the specialization, the students must complete 12 credit hours of courses that are designated as entrepreneurship courses and maintain a minimum average GPA of 2.00 among all courses taken to fulfill this specialization.
