Entrepreneurship Emphasis

Corporate recruiters often cite a lack of entrepreneurial "mind-set" as a deficiency in today’s MBA students. An Emphasis in Entrepreneurship is one way to shore up these skills, regardless of Concentration or Career Path. Students who go through this program are prized for their can-do attitudes, perseverance, innovative thinking, creativity, analytic skills and ability to get the job done with superior results.
