The academic component of the Kelley Center for Entrepreneurship includes opportunities to obtain either an entrepreneurial leadership major or minor, or an associate’s degree in Entrepreneurial Leadership. The study of entrepreneurial leadership will assist students, whether they are starting a small business; taking over the family business; creating the next great organization; developing new products, processes and/or services within existing organizations; or by starting, growing, managing and revitalizing schools, churches, governmental entities and nonprofit service organizations.
Entrepreneur is not a job title; it is a way of thinking. Entrepreneurship involves innovation, curiosity and risk. It is the art and science of identifying a need and transforming that need into a product, service or business opportunity. Entrepreneurial leadership is the process of engaging others in creative thinking and problem solving. Entrepreneurial talents are needed in both the profit and the nonprofit sectors.
