Business Administration Major, Entrepreneurship Concentration (B.S.) (Combined B.S./M.B.A.)

Entrepreneurs are key to successful economies, communities and countries.  New Jersey has always been the home for very entrepreneurial individuals, start-up and larger innovative companies.  Johnson & Johnson was born in New Jersey and it continues to be a highly entrepreneurial and innovative company.  Students in entrepreneurship learn and practice the latest methods that are used by innovative start-ups and corporations to create successful products and services.  So, whether you plan to launch a start-up, or if you are interested in a career in social media or product development at corporations such as Unilever or HelloFresh, the Concentration in Entrepreneurship is the perfect fit for you.  Our experiential approach provide students opportunities to learn about:

  • Opportunity identification, discovery and development
  • Moving from a growth mindset to an entrepreneurial mindset
  • Methodologies to “de-risk” opportunities using problem solving skills
  • Using customer-discovery methodologies to clarify user wants and needs
  • Conducting situation and/or environmental analyses to clarify market attractiveness on the basis of data
  • Creating physical and virtual prototypes as part of lean startup and “effectuation” models
  • Differentiating between agile planning models and the role of strategy in the evolution of the firm 
  • Identifying and establishing defensible and entrepreneurial endeavors through paradigm formation and innovation frameworks
  • Understanding the firm lifecycle and changing resource needs as companies grow
  • Iterating or pivoting towards a sustainable business models, and the role of sustainability in responsible entrepreneurship
