Entrepreneurial Studies

Green Chile Ranch dressing: A new Dion’s favorite! But how to determine the right temperature conditions to ship it across the country so it’s just as delicious when it arrives? Entrepreneurial studies students engage in fast-paced problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and innovation to solve real-world problems. Over the course of a semester, they work in small teams on three different consulting projects with actual start-up companies. They conduct research, interview customers, and work as a team to devise a solution, then propose their solutions directly to the business CEOs. In their fourth and final project, teams create a concept for a business and pitch it “Shark Tank”-style to real investors.
