Overview

The Food and Beverage Entrepreneurship program of Johnson & Wales University combines courses in entrepreneurship with traditional business classes to provide you with the skills and knowledge to open your own venture, join an emerging food- or beverage-related venture, or work as a corporate entrepreneur in a variety of food- or beverage-related industries. Experiential opportunities both in and out of the classroom provide you with the practical skills to identify opportunities and solve the kinds of problems that you’d face in launching a business.

Work with expert faculty, as well as business and community leaders, at our Larry Friedman Center for Entrepreneurship, where you will find the resources to help support making your business ideas a reality.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:
  • Evaluate human, financial and other resources in the entrepreneurial ecosystem that support or inhibit new ventures.
  • Communicate effectively to diverse audiences, regarding different purposes and situations, through a variety of professional methods.
  • Apply ethical principles in response to common entrepreneurial decisions and challenges.
  • Develop a business plan for an innovative product or service in a food or beverage-related market.
  • Analyze the sources of funding available for food and beverage-related ventures and use decision support tools to determine effective structures for early-stage investments.
