Educating Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs
Independence, self-reliance and self-motivation are common characteristics of entrepreneurs. Baylor's entrepreneurship education program enhances these natural inclinations, as well as provides students with a broad-based understanding of the private sector. Combining challenging class instruction with active involvement in new and emerging ventures, students acquire a practical well-rounded knowledge that prepares them for the diverse demands of today's competitive marketplace. Not only does Baylor offer an award-winning entrepreneurship curriculum that is recognized throughout the world, but it is also one of the few universities in the country that offer both a BBA in entrepreneurship and an MBA program with an entrepreneurial emphasis.
Baylor continues to be a leader in the field of entrepreneurship education, demonstrating its commitment in concrete ways:
Baylor offers an entrepreneurship major, one of a few colleges to do so--though over 300 have entrepreneurship courses. Graduate courses have been offered since 1977.
Baylor has six endowed positions in entrepreneurship, more than any other university.
Baylor is one of a few colleges to have an endowed position devoted to the study of family businesses.
The Center's entrepreneurship curriculum features practical courses which put students "in the field" with entrepreneurs and allow students to put into practice the knowledge gained in their coursework. Students are required to initiate ventures in their first course, and a number of these continue today as successful multi-million dollar firms.
