At UT, we are focused on developing entrepreneurial talent through rigorous course offerings, applied learning activities, networking opportunities, and mentoring.
A concentration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation prepares students to see problems as opportunities, to seek out those opportunities, analyze them, and create value by developing solutions. Creativity and problem-solving techniques are key elements of the program. Students will develop an understanding the entrepreneur's mind set and the critical roles that passion, networking, and communication play in the development and implementation of a successful business.
These skills help prepare students for various careers, including value-creating entrepreneurs, early stage business employees, entrepreneurial enablers, business consultants, social cause entrepreneurs, or professionals in corporations that promote an entrepreneurial approach to management. The skills gained from this concentration enable the student to effectively function and contribute in various areas, regardless of career path.
