About the Entrepreneurship Program

Three key principles define how we shape the student learning experience:

Cross-Discipline Focus

Offer a co-major that requires students who pursue a degree in entrepreneurship to also major in another program and blends undergraduates from majors across campus in curricular and co-curricular programs that stimulate diversity in thought, decision-making, and action. During the 2017-2018 academic year, students from 114 of Miami’s 122 majors completed at least one entrepreneur-ship course last year, actively engaging students from the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Creative Arts, College of Engineering and Computing, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Education Health and Safety, and the Farmer School of Business.

Practice-Based Model

Entrepreneurship requires thinking and doing. For students to learn entrepreneurship, they must do entrepreneurial activities. Doing requires practice, and practice requires curricular and co-curricular programs that foster experiential learning. The Department of Entrepreneurship's practice-based model of learning incorporates play, empathy, creation, experimentation, and reflection into the design of curricular and co-curricular courses and programs. Specifically, students are immersed in team-based learning contexts that require them to apply knowledge accrued in the classroom through practice-based experiential assignments that require entrepreneurial decision-making and action.

Ecosystem Integrated

To foster an entrepreneurial mindset and understanding in our students, The Department of Entrepreneurship integrates curricular and co-curricular programs with ecosystem partners where thinking and doing takes place. During the 2017-2018 academic year, our students and student-led startups received mentoring, coaching and advice from more than 270 startup founders, angels and institutional investors, accelerator directors, social entrepreneurs, and others from across the U.S., including representatives from organizations like SVB, Cintrifuse, Hyde Park Venture Partners, Fifth Third Bank, and Flywheel Social Enterprise Hub, among many others.
