In the Classroom

As an ACU student, you will have the opportunity in the classroom to explore entrepreneurship and learn skills that will help prepare you for future success, whether you start your own venture, work for an entrepreneurial business or work in a traditional corporate setting.  You will also be challenged to explore how giving back can be a part of your entrepreneurial journey and equipped to do it more effectively. 

The curriculum is designed to give you real world experiences and flexibility in scheduling to match your interests.  Email us if you have any questions about how you can integrate entrepreneurship into your studies at ACU.

E&P Concentration

Regardless of major, you can pursue a concentration in entrepreneurship and philanthropy with as few as nine hours.  Learn more about the requirements of the concentration.  You can also pursue a more in-depth focus, including 20+ hours focused on entrepreneurship and philanthropy, through the Management major in COBA. 

Flexibility in Focus

With a variety of innovative courses, you can also tailor the E&P concentration to fit your interests and passions, whether it’s social entrepreneurship or launching a high growth venture.

Active Learning

While courses include theory and concepts relevant to the course subject, the curriculum is also designed to incorporate experiential learning opportunities with practical, hands-on activities.  Class activities include case studies, interactions with experienced entrepreneurs, projects for growing businesses, starting your own venture, and more.
