From unique courses and collaborations with our College of Engineering to alliances with the business community, we provide the proving ground to help you realize your dream of one day owning your own business or working as an innovator within a corporation.

Why choose Entrepreneurship?

Western New England University is a highly entrepreneurial community, encouraging cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation across its diverse range of programs. Business students may participate in collaborative courses and ventures with students from the Entrepreneurship Club and in projects such as the 3 Day Start-up, a 72-hour learning-by-doing event that teaches entrepreneurial skills to University students in an extreme hands-on experience.

Career Opportunities

Entrepreneurship majors are prepared to found and operate their own businesses or work as intrapreneurs within larger organizations that employ a competitive strategy of innovation. The principles and techniques students majoring in entrepreneurship will learn will be equally applicable to entrepreneurial opportunities in business, government, social, and academic organizations that are attempting to grow via innovation.
