Entrepreneurship Lecture Series
In light of possible continued testing difficulties amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the UF Graduate School temporarily adjusted the GMAT and GRE testing policy for Spring 2021. For Spring 2021 admissions, applicants to one of Warrington’s Specialized Master’s programs will no longer be required to submit a GMAT or GRE score as part of the admissions process. Please contact the program administrators for updated application requirements and to check space availability.
Case Lecture Series
Students often have a very “silo-based functional” view of entrepreneurial management situations and lack the understanding that entrepreneurs often share the same challenging and emotional experiences…with respect to Robert Frost: many entrepreneurs travel the same road!
Established in 2009, the Entrepreneurship Lecture Series brings individuals to campus to discuss the range of “emotional” management situations that present themselves throughout the entirety of the entrepreneurial lifecycle (e.g. embezzlement, lawsuit, cash crunch, PR crisis, liquidity, etc). In addition, the series seeks to enhance student understanding of topics relevant to entrepreneurship and innovation, provide the background necessary for students interested in entrepreneurial careers, and introduce students to resources in the entrepreneurial arena while providing a forum for networking and career development.
Entrepreneurial Speaker & Workshop Series
The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center offers an entrepreneurial speaker and workshop series throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. Some events will be held on campus while others will be held in the heart of Gainesville’s downtown startup community. Check the Center’s calendar for details.
Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center’s student-run Entrepreneurship Club brings a host of guest speakers to campus as part of their Monday evening club meetings, from Alexis Ohanian, Co-founder of Reddit to Rob Carter, Co-CEO & CIO of FedEx. eClub meetings are open to the public.
