The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center was created to teach, coach and inspire students to be entrepreneurial in their lives. The Center provides students the tools and experience necessary to creatively pursue new opportunities and innovations in the startup, social and corporate venture arenas. At the undergraduate level, the Center offers a popular entrepreneurship minor as well as a combined degree option that pairs with any major. At the graduate level, students can choose from a specialized entrepreneurship master’s degree or a graduate minor in entrepreneurship.
The Thomas S. Johnson Master of Science in Entrepreneurship Program (MSE) equips entrepreneurs with the skills and savvy to plan, launch and sustain innovative ventures on their terms. Three-piece suits and old-school methods are not the norm here. Big ideas and bold confidence are our prerequisites.
The entrepreneurship minor provides all UF undergraduates with the opportunity to learn the basic principles of business operations and new venture development. Start with Professor Rossi’s popular Principles of Entrepreneurship course and choose entrepreneurship electives such as High Tech Entrepreneurship and Creativity to round out your minor.
Non-business graduate students can earn a Graduate Minor in Entrepreneurship.
Enhance your degree with rich courses in entrepreneurship and innovation. Over 25 entrepreneurship courses are available at the undergraduate and graduate levels. All UF students are eligible to enroll in the 6-credit Entrepreneurship and Empowerment in South Africa (EESA) study abroad program and the 2-credit Business Plan Lab, which is part of CEI’s Big Idea Gator Business Plan Competition.
The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program aims to integrate the theory and practice of business with the context of current issues that the business world faces. The DBA is a professional doctorate that emphasizes the application of theory to actual business issues. The DBA program will help candidates develop proficiency in applied research by improving their methodological and analytical skills. Participants who successfully complete the program will be equipped for high-level positions in numerous sectors including higher education, consulting and a return to profession.
