The entrepreneurship concentration is cross disciplinary, focusing on the challenges of establishing and managing new and growing ventures. The business environment and management skills required for success in new ventures are significantly different from those in established, mature organizations. The entrepreneurship concentration is relevant to students preparing to work in a variety of entrepreneurial environments.
The NC State Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program gives students an unparalleled opportunity to engage in real-world business development. Based on a hands-on learning process involving entrepreneurs, start-ups, and transdisciplinary teams in a clinical setting, students learn how to look at new ideas and figure out the steps necessary to commercialize them. They also interact with local businesses and help them succeed.
