The Entrepreneurship program of the Department of Economics and Business offers courses of study focused on value creation and value assessment as the critical overlay to the study of business and entrepreneurship. Real life interactions with business founders, owners and executives, and real time views of present-day business occurrences support this approach to understanding the fundamental dimensions of entrepreneurial thinking and new venture creation.

Beyond the Classroom

Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.


Students in the program have opportunities to immerse themselves in the innovation ecosystem by:

  • Attending pitch/business plan competitions

  • Conducting independent research projects
