What You Can Do
The Entrepreneurship Minor Gives Students the Tools to Succeed
Entrepreneurship students prove themselves to be among the "movers and shakers" of the EIU campus. They are determined, self-motivated, and think "outside of the box." They are completing a rigorous curriculum that allows them to enter into a variety of different professional careers, all of which are characterized by a drive for unparalleled success.
Start & Grow your Own Business
The EIU Entrepreneurship Minor provides students with the necessary skill set to conceptualize a start-up venture. Being able to apply for initial funding, our students can develop a promising business idea into a successful, sustainable and growth-oriented venture.
Assume Leadership in an Existing Enterprise
Our Entrepreneurship students have assembled the expertise to become valued leaders in existing businesses. Their innovative, broad-based thinking allows them to take on managerial responsibility and lead an existing company to success.
Take Over a Family Business
Many of our students come from a family-business background. The experience in the Entrepreneurship Minor prepares them to grow into contributing members of their family business, with the long-term goal to become successors of the current family owners.
Develop an Internet Start-Up
In today's web-based environment, our Entrepreneurship students are well prepared to take on the challenges that stem from a turbulent decade for internet start-ups. Whether it is a website that supports a "brick-and-mortar" operation, or a full-blown, web-only presence, our students are well-versed in the development of an e-commerce business.
