Entrepreneurship isn't only the explicit act of starting a business; it is a mindset—a mentality that is interdisciplinary in nature. An entrepreneur needs to know a little bit about everything regarding business, such as accounting, leadership, management, marketing, economics, finance, ethics, business law and strategy. With a degree in Entrepreneurial Studies, you will know how to recognize opportunities, generate creative ideas, and champion ideas at an existing organization, a start-up business or in your community, and you will know how to implement those ideas and bring about meaningful change. When combined with a liberal arts education, which is entrepreneurial in nature, you become developed as a whole person—preparing you for life with a Culture for Service attitude that reflects USF's motto.

In addition to the University's liberal arts requirements, you must complete 75 s.h. of Business and Entrepreneurship courses.
