Entrepreneurship Degree


You plan to do big things.

Clean the water, feed the children, boost equality, advance technology, change the world.

It starts here.

Whether you aspire to run a tech start-up, launch a non-profit organization, or open your own shop, an entrepreneurship degree can help make that happen.

About the Entrepreneurship Degree

Big plans can fall flat without the skills and know-how to support them. Our two-year Associate in Arts in Entrepreneurship degree will teach you what you need to know about running your own business, improve your “soft skills” and deepen your knowledge of the field you are passionate about.

You’ll take a core of business-related courses to sharpen your business, management, budgeting and marketing skills and then choose electives you’re interested in to develop your subject-matter expertise. Examples might include:

  • Music/Theatre
  • Automotive
  • Graphic Design
  • Construction
  • Product Development/Pre-engineering
  • Environmental Science
  • Information Technology
  • Early Childhood Education

The entrepreneurship degree can be used to transfer to four-year schools to complete a bachelor’s degree.
