Outside the Classroom

Real-World Learning Opportunities

Our programs give students the knowledge, skills, experience, resources, and opportunities they need to create enterprises from the ground up. Not only do students learn about entrepreneurship in the classroom, they participate in real-world consulting for small businesses and immersion opportunities. These include our successful entrepreneurship mentor program and long-running annual Business Plan Competition, in which Dominic Natalizio (right) came in 1st place with a Grand Prize of $10,000, in the Graduate/Alumni track in 2019.
