The business management entrepreneurship major is designed for those who want to learn more about opportunity recognition and evaluation and new venture start-up and growth. Students in this program will participate in courses and seminars staffed by faculty members as well as entrepreneurs and business owners/managers in the local community. Students will have opportunities to learn firsthand what is needed to start a new business venture that will add economic and cultural value to the community, and to run an existing business with an entrepreneurial mindset.
In addition, the entrepreneurship major can be earned completely online. With online classes and flexible scheduling including day, and/or evening classes, students can complete the program in as little as two years.
Stark State also offers a one-year certificate program as well as a career enhancement certificate in entrepreneurship. Students may apply credits earned in this certificate program to the business management associate degree program. Students will be awarded a certificate in entrepreneurship upon completion of the courses listed.
