Entrepreneurship

The entrepreneurship major at MC prepares students to evaluate potential new ventures and to understand what it takes to succeed in a highly dynamic business environment.

Entrepreneurial skills and abilities allow students to dream up innovative responses to opportunities in the marketplace.

The curriculum consists of interdisciplinary coursework in management, marketing, accounting, and finance. Along the way, students are encouraged to develop an innovative mindset with a focus on entrepreneurial application.

While you’re honing your managerial and creativity skills, you’ll also explore a diverse curriculum that nurtures critical thinking, encourages teamwork and builds your writing abilities. You’ll investigate ethical and moral issues, while acquiring management skills in a Christian context. And you’ll gain understanding of business issues from a global perspective, integrating awareness of current events and financial trends.

Rise to the Top

Students majoring in entrepreneurship typically desire to start their own business or not-for-profit organization, or to work in a family business. Other options include business analyst, management consultant, product or business development, and franchise owner.
