Northwood's Entrepreneurial Studies course provides students with the knowledge and experiences to transform a passion project into a successful business. In addition to gaining a better understanding of economic theory, Entrepreneurial Studies students learn the common traits of successful enterprises from small businesses to multi-national corporations.
Like all of Northwood's Signature Academic Programs, the course work for Entrepreneurial Studies extends beyond traditional textbooks and outside of its classroom walls. In addition to gaining first hand experience by helping local companies execute their business plans, students work in groups to create their own business models. This process requires students to begin at the idea phase and culminates with them pitching their plans in front of faculty members and outside experts. Entrepreneurial Studies provides students with a practical work experience while developing and honing their abilities to collaborate, think creatively and communicate effectively.
Entrepreneurial Studies encapsulates the values of our mission and is one of the vehicles used by Northwood students to distinguish themselves in the college admission process. The vital skills gained in this course serve as a critical piece of the foundation which allows our graduates to lead lives of consequence.
