Our entrepreneurship program engages directly with the startup community, focuses on real-world business problems, experiential learning, and getting out of the building. Some of our student experiences include E-Day, The Entrepreneurial Experience Lecture Series, Mentor Day, Learning Journeys, and our Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO).

CEO (Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization)

Join our student organization, CEO! Whether you've been running a business for years or are just curious about how entrepreneurship works, our club is a great place to grow your network and connect with like-minded individuals. Join today!

E-Day (Evaluation Day)

The center’s signature learning experience culminates in E-Day, short for Evaluation Day, when senior entrepreneurship majors present their business plan to a panel of alumni entrepreneurs and business executives. Just as real-world entrepreneurs put everything on the line, so do our students—who pass or fail the class based on whether the expert panel approves the plan. Learn more.

The Entrepreneurial Experience

Join us during fall and spring semesters for these free, open to the public guest lectures. We bring in provocative  entrepreneurs from all walks of life that are changing the world - economically and socially. Each lecture includes a presentation on the entrepreneur's story, lessons learned, and advice. Lectures occur in Pruis Hall at 11:00am. See this semester's lineup and past speakers.

Learning Journeys

The most successful entrepreneurs know that success occurs when you get out of the building. Our Learning Journeys are designed to help you explore the state-wide entrepreneurial ecosystem, understand your options after college, and grow your personal network. Find out more.
