Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship concentration online program assists learners in developing an understanding of how a business enterprise is conceived, launched, managed and sustained. Positioning a business entity for growth and lateral development is an art in itself, and requires knowledge, skills, hard work and talent.

Entrepreneurial activity has been a potent source of innovation and job generation in the Global economy. In the U.S., the majority of new jobs are generated by new entrepreneurial firms. By successfully completing the entrepreneurship concentration within the BA in Business Administration online program students will be able to identify viable business opportunities and how such opportunities are transformed into new ventures.

Additional emphasis is placed on how successful entrepreneurial ventures compete for financial resources, identify and reach their target markets, and establish business processes, systems and controls to manage small and growth-oriented ventures.
