The mission of the Entrepreneurship Concentration is to instill in our students “transformative” and “transferable” entrepreneurial thinking, planning and behavior.  Based on the definition of Entrepreneurship “to undertake”, the objective of this program is, to inculcate the key ideas of social entrepreneurship grounded in innovation and technology based on analytical skills that effectively meet the triple bottom line (social, environmental and profit) requirements of all businesses.  All graduating students will be trained to be equally capable of either, successfully starting and developing their own venture that addresses social and economic needs or, being employed in high-end projects in small-medium-large firms that utilize these entrepreneurial skills, while simultaneously meeting the firm’s corporate social responsibility objectives.
