At the heart of our entrepreneurship programming is learning. We have several opportunities:

Accountants, artists, biologists, chemists, petroleum geologists, computer scientists, managers, music technologists, web developers, finance students, and many other students can benefit from knowing the fundamentals of starting a business. This certificate has been influenced by some of the top experts in entrepreneurship in the world.

University minor in Entrepreneurship

When FHSU began this minor in Entrepreneurship, that is open to students of any major as a "university minor," it was one of the first of its kind in the country. This minor is designed to provide a student from any major with the foundational tools to take an idea, evaluate it, and potentially turn it into a real business in his or her chosen field of study.

BBA, Concentration in Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is a versatile field that allows creativity to become a reality. Students have a chance to acquire the professional skills and tools that are needed to be successful in an ever changing marketplace. Careers in entrepreneurship will improve different aspects in the economy, such as creating jobs and allowing new ideas to improve the corporate world all over the world.

Entrepreneurship Internship

Entrepreneurship Internships offer students a tremendous opportunity to learn from the inside of a start-up business and to help propel it forward. Funding from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation provide 80% of the funding with the business providing 20%. Students work an average of 15 hours a week in these popular funded internships.
