The anchor of the Entrepreneurship program in the B.B.A. Business Degree program is the development of an entrepreneurial mindset which adds value to virtually all organizations imaginable. In this forward-thinking business program, you’ll develop the skills necessary to keenly identify new business and profitability opportunities and learn how to scrutinize, calculate, and potentially capitalize on them.

Many graduates from our flexible B.B.A. program work in small companies, big companies, start-ups, manufacturing and distribution, service companies, banks, non-profits, government, education, and even law enforcement. This program teaches the adult business administration student a wide range of business skills used by other successful entrepreneurs, supervisors, middle management, and large corporate executives.

An entrepreneurial mindset will help set you apart at work and make your new startup venture or business reinvigoration model more successful and competitive.
