"Entrepreneurship is more than an academic discipline and reaches far beyond the concept of traditional business creation and small business management. Entrepreneurship is a mindset, a framework for thinking and acting that can empower anyone to succeed. And, in today’s rapidly changing, highly complex world, the need for entrepreneurial thinkers at all levels of society has never been greater.

From preparing students to become workforce-ready graduates or next-generation innovators to elevating the entrepreneurial thinking of the existing workforce, an entrepreneurial mindset exposes opportunity, ignites ambition, and fosters innovation. It shifts everyday thinking into a new framework, empowering people to identify problems, deploy solutions, and make connections using creative and critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.

In effect, an entrepreneurial mindset can empower ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things."*


Entrepreneurial mindset isn't just for business faculty or entrepreneurs, it's for everyone.

Professionals with an entrepreneurial mindset are major players pushing industries, organizations and ideas forward. They possess unique, future-forward qualities that make them invaluable contributors to the workforce and give themselves, their teams and their businesses a competitive advantage.

Whether the economy is stable or uncertain, employees who can leverage their curiosity and creative problem-solving and are not afraid to dare have the potential to achieve professional and organizational success.
