If there was ever a hands-on entrepreneurship program, this is it. Community Entrepreneurship instills the foundations of successful enterprise development including strategic business planning, marketing techniques, and market analyses and projections. As entrepreneurship is a vital thread in the fabric of a community, students aquire entrepreneurial skills in the context of social responsibility and healthy community development.
Students gain real-world experience in entrepreneurship in multiple ways. Students become entrepreneurs in the risk-free classroom setting. Or they are partnered with entrepreneurs in the community through courses. And many CENT students start enterprises of their own in the real world while they are still students or upon graduation.
