MBA Concentration: Global Entrepreneurship

The Global Entrepreneurship concentration provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to research, plan and prepare a viable business plan for the creation of a new enterprise in a global environment or to engineer the growth of an existing organization. Through classroom and experiential projects, students will learn how to determine the feasibility of a proposed enterprise, characterize its market constituency, identify the company’s competitive advantage and gauge the demand for a proposed venture. The global business aspect of the enhanced Global Entrepreneurship Concentration will position students to capitalize on the increasingly global nature of business and the demand for global business expertise.
