The Entrepreneurial Management major has been called one of the most intense majors on campus and may be the most distinctive in the country. We have designed our curriculum to be as close to the real world as possible, including the chance of failure. At the heart of the program is our capstone New Venture Creation course, also known as "senior sweat." At the end of your final semester, students face the ultimate challenge of their college career—E-day. You present a full business plan, which you developed over the past two years, to a panel of alumni and executives in downtown Indianapolis. What's at stake? Your graduation.
Are you looking for a challenge? Are you comfortable with risk? Do you want to be the best? Are you willing to put your graduation on the line? If so, we want you.
Core classes for the major begin the fall semester of the junior year, and it takes two full years to complete the major. You must complete MGT 241 before your junior year.
