Studying Entrepreneurship

 

Brigham Young University

Written by Anne Hauser for Gaebler Ventures

We take a look at what Brigham Young University offers to students who are interested in entrepreneurship and considering pursing an entrepreneurship degree.

Brigham Young University (BYU) students have a different take on entrepreneurship, as most students take an 18 to 24-month break from college to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Entrepreneur Degrees at Brigham Young University

The university says the students' experiences around the world help foster the maturity and spirit needed to be a successful entrepreneur. It also claims more than half of the student body uses the resources offered by the Center for Entrepreneurship.

Both business and non-business majors can use the resources offered by the Center for Entrepreneurship, and learn from the schools motto: "learn, earn, return."

Such a saying emphasizes the importance of developing business ideas, learning from current business trends, and identifying how entrepreneurship fits into today's economy. BYU students who use the available resources graduate with sufficient preparation to start their own business ventures.

Along with a good education, the students see daily examples of successful BYU entrepreneurs because the Center is entirely funded by BYU entrepreneurial alumni. Several times a year, such BYU alumni who have thrived in business, meet on campus to network with each other and mentor current students.

For students interested in learning how start their own businesses while still in school, mentors are available to help bring ideas to fruition, or to assist with problems or challenges.

Competitions for students involved with the Center for Entrepreneurship provide more than $150,000 in awards to student finalists annually.

Go to byu.edu for more information about the Center for Entrepreneurship and to read about BYU student successes.
