<strong>Learning - The Foundation for Life</strong>

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

Certificate in Entrepreneurship

This certificate is designed to provide the basics of entrepreneurship to students of any major. 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.

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 Peter and Pamela Werth and 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.

Studying in the Robbins College of Business and Entrepreneurship

Not all business, information technology, or media students will become entrepreneurs, but nearly all will work for, sell to, provide services to, provide financing to, provide technology, train employees for, or otherwise interact with startup companies and entrepreneurs. Having a fundamental understanding of entrepreneurship is important for all students in the Robbins College of Business and Entrepreneurship. Therefore, basic principles key to entrepreneurship are threaded through the core programs in this college.
