Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship
Department of Management and Marketing
The major in Entrepreneurship offers preparation to students for successful venture creation and implementation and provides them opportunities to acquire the necessary operational knowledge to start a new enterprise and to study business communication, marketing, finance, management, economics, accounting, and information systems from an entrepreneurial perspective. The curriculum is flexible—students may tailor the program to fit specific needs while acquiring the business background necessary for pursuing entrepreneurial goals. Successful business professionals contribute to the program and an advisory board of recognized entrepreneurial leaders mentors students. Specialized courses, an internship, and interaction with acknowledged business leaders are intended to provide the impetus to start and operate a successful business.
A major in Entrepreneurship consists of 30 hours, 50 percent of which must be taken in residence at MTSU. An elective business minor may be added, but additional minor(s) require total hours for graduation to exceed 120.
