Entrepreneurial thinkers create value in society using innovation under conditions of uncertainty. The ability to think entrepreneurially is critical for all students, regardless of their major or their career plans. The entrepreneurship program at LIU Brooklyn is designed to engage students to think entrepreneurially while they learn how to execute on their vision efficiently and effectively.
The 120-credit B.S. in Entrepreneurship teaches students how to prepare and execute a comprehensive strategy for launching a new venture. The venture can be in any organizational context – large or small, new or existing, non-profit or for profit. The entrepreneurial process of value creation through innovation remains the same regardless of the context or the ultimate goal. Although people often assume that the focus of entrepreneurship is on starting for-profit businesses, learning the entrepreneurial process will help you to think more strategically in all of your endeavors.
The best way to understand the entrepreneurial process is to take a hands-on, experiential approach. In this major, students will interact extensively with the business community both inside and outside the classroom and produce a plan that is both defensible to potential investors and actionable in the real world.
