Entrepreneurship is a project-based focus that allows students to create business plans and work on cases from start-up as well as established companies. In addition to traditional courses covering critical concepts and perspectives in entrepreneurship, other highly experiential courses provide significant faculty mentoring and guidance through real-world case studies.
In some courses, students form consulting teams that work with faculty in creating business plans and devising business solutions. In other courses, students work on their own business plan or the business plan of a mentor from the entrepreneurship community. Students also have the opportunity to work intensively on projects relating to technology and commercialization.
Faber Entrepreneurship Center
Students work with the Moore School's Faber Entrepreneurship Center to develop a customized curriculum that addresses new venture creation and innovation, the strategy and management of intellectual property commercialization, and management of small, high-growth organizations. Students are encouraged to include coursework that allows for individualized focus on the development of field projects working with entrepreneurs and start-up ventures.
Students benefit from exposure to faculty who have significant personal experience with new ventures in Silicon Valley as well as with local start-ups. This area of focus will draw upon faculty with strong connections to the entrepreneurship community and expertise in issues relating to venture capital, intellectual property, technology, commercialization and management of small, high-growth enterprises.
The Faber Entrepreneurship Center is a powerful resource to help people develop, run and manage a new venture. The center’s contributions to the success of newly-formed enterprises will have a huge impact on growing the economy.”
