Entrepreneurship

Today's business leaders need entrepreneurial skills more than ever to prosper in our increasingly competitive global environment.

Entrepreneurs change the world

Entrepreneurship is a mindset, not an activity. The concentration starts with an overview of the lifestyle entrepreneurs experience, the skills they require, and the common errors they need to avoid. Subsequent courses help you assess the market, refine your product or service, test your assumptions, and persuade investors and others to provide the capital and additional resources you need to reduce your risk and maximize your chances for success.

Career opportunities

Hult’s entrepreneurship concentration helps you identify, assess, and implement practical ideas successfully. Whether you intend to start a business, help an existing one grow, work with a family firm, solve a global social problem, or work for a larger firm, the skills you’ll learn will be highly relevant. Organizations around the world are increasingly looking to those with entrepreneurial spirits and skills. Learn how to approach the marketplace confidently and independently as you chart your own path to success.
