 Entrepreneurship (NEW)

 

A newly offered major, the Entrepreneurship major is for undergraduates who want to learn about creating new businesses, either as stand-alone new firms or as part of existing organisations’ new business growth plans. Through a slew of targeted electives, entrepreneurship study missions to places such as Silicon Valley and other entrepreneurial locations, and the entrepreneurship practicum, you will become familiar with tools, techniques, theories, and practices that will enable you to identify, refine, incubate and grow your new business ideas.

 

As an undergraduate, your proximity and application of the latest information and communication trends puts you in an advantageous position to think about radical and emergent new business ideas as you are likely to be more sensitive to the latest trends and fashion changes. This is a good position to both start a new firm on your own and help other senior executives in established firms to design responses to these new technologies and ways of doing business using these technologies. This major equips you with the tools, techniques, theories, practices, contacts to identify, refine, incubate and grow your new business ideas.

 

To culminate your journey in this major, the exciting entrepreneurship practicum will allow you to launch your new venture while being a student at SMU. In this practicum, we will identify and connect you with appropriate external mentors who will advise the you through the launch your new business..
