Pamplin School of Business: Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management B.B.A.
The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management (EIM) major prepares students for career paths that require the ability to identify, assess and exploit opportunities to generate economic and social value via the creation, management, and growth of ventures as standalone entities or as part of established organizations. The program’s curriculum in innovation and entrepreneurship fundamentals such as ideation, business model development, opportunity assessment, value creation and capture, and commercialization emphasizes challenging experiential learning exercises and projects. The program’s culminating experience requires that students develop and launch a venture, whether inside an existing company or as a completely new start-up.
Students in the Entrepreneur Scholars Program pursuing the EIM major will be required to take the three Entrepreneur Scholars courses, four additional required courses and one additional elective course. See below for the Entrepreneur Scholars Requirements.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management General Curriculum University Core Requirements – 39 hours The University Core Curriculum emphasizes a diverse set of disciplines in order to prompt students to engage with fundamental questions of existence in a cross-disciplinary way, rather than holding that one particular discipline has all the answers. Each of our core courses embeds certain Core Skills, such as writing and analytical and logical reasoning. In developing these skills students acquire the tools they will need to contribute to and flourish in an increasingly complex world.
