Entrepreneurship is a career path for many students upon graduation or later in their career. Launching a new venture raises unique challenges given that a sustainable business model has yet to be determined and financial resources are initially limited. This pathway offers a curriculum that combines strategy, finance, organizations, and marketing in pursuit of successful new venture creation. The pathway includes a sequence that allows interested students to develop and launch new companies (KIEI 462, 464, and 466-5), coupled with courses that develop discipline-based skills of particular relevance to building new firms.
