Entrepreneurship Concentration

Silicon Valley is admired around the world as a dynamic entrepreneurial region that creates new firms, products and industries. San Jose offers unique educational opportunities for would-be entrepreneurs: we have more entrepreneurs, more venture capitalists, and more legal, accounting, and other specialists supporting entrepreneurship within a 30-mile radius of campus than any university located elsewhere in the world.

A concentration in Entrepreneurship prepares students to create and manage their own new ventures. This might include launching a new business, buying a franchise, leading a new project or department within a company or managing an existing family business. The interdisciplinary curriculum augments the BSBA curriculum by focusing on the challenges of developing and managing new and small businesses.

The concentration includes three required and three elective courses. The three required courses are listed below. Additional information on the concentration can be found on the BSAC webpage.
