Entrepreneurship

Create the next big thing

A Chance to Innovate & Explore

The Entrepreneurship major at Illinois Wesleyan is committed to awakening students to the excitement of learning; exposing students to technological, analytical, research, and communication skills necessary to function successfully in managerial, organizational, or entrepreneurial careers; preparing students for advanced graduate programs, particularly in law, business, government, international relations, or related fields; helping students to function independently in a professional environment immediately upon graduation; sensitizing students to a world in which respect for cultural and intellectual diversity is essential; and encouraging students to consider at all times how their actions and the action of those organizations of which they are leading or a part affect society. 

Through course work and co-curricular activities sponsored by the department, students are encouraged to gain an awareness of their own potential, assuming responsibility for their own actions, and making ethical long-term choices.
