Entrepreneurship (ENT) Concentration 

Entrepreneurship education is becoming increasingly important given the current global economic climate. The Entrepreneurship concentration allows students to draw from a variety of carefully selected courses to become a business generalist, well versed in organizing and managing resources. The Simon School has a legacy of educating entrepreneurs. Graduates with this concentration have started their own ventures or have pursued “intrapreneurial” careers with major corporations. Students often combine this concentration with finance or marketing to further enhance their educational base. This is especially true for those pursuing investment banking/M&A where the entrepreneurship knowledge can be very useful.
