New ventures are starting at a record rate and there’s no end in sight. The recent economic meltdown has forced many people to begin a business essentially to create a job for themselves. However, many of these businesses will not survive. Starting a business is more than opening a store or beginning a service.

The Loyola Entrepreneurship Program provides students with the necessary skills to successfully compete in this ambiguous environment. Students critically review their assumptions about corporate change and new venturing, and they explore the special demands and opportunities of the entrepreneurial challenge. Students learn about the strategic aspects of the entrepreneurial process starting with the identification of business opportunities, the development of unique business models, the formation of the entrepreneurial team, the securing of financial resources, and the importance and practical application of marketing, economics, accounting, finance, and management skills.

Entrepreneurs are often described as individuals who bring innovation to the market place. In this regard, the Loyola Entrepreneurship Program fosters innovative thinking and acting. Throughout the program, the advantages of innovation are examined and the myriad of challenges of bringing ideas to market are explored. Courses are designed not just to provide academic learning experiences but also real-life experiences. The close interaction with business practitioners, hands-on project work, and the balance of theory and application reinforces the relevance of a balanced entrepreneurship education.

Beyond the functional competencies, the major is also designed to foster social skills with an emphasis on leadership and critical thinking for the development of innovative and proactive minds. With these skills, students are being prepared to lead extraordinary lives either as corporate intrapreneurs or new venture entrepreneurs
