The entrepreneurship co-concentration provides a strong background for launching and managing high-growth ventures in nascent or high-velocity industries. The curriculum introduces a set of tools and a way of thinking that will help students to navigate the uncertain, ambiguous contexts that often characterize new initiatives in established firms as well as startups.

Intended to complement traditional concentrations such as finance or accounting, the course of study is available to Carroll School students. The entrepreneurship co-concentration will feature core courses and electives. The program will provide a strong academic foundation in the fundamentals of nontraditional business.

The Entrepreneurship Co-Concentration helps to prepare students for careers in:

  • Startup companies
  • Social enterprises
  • Corporate entrepreneurship
  • Venture capital/Private equity
  • Management consulting



Students in the Carroll School of Management interested must contact Student Services to declare the entrepreneurship co-concentration. There is no application required. Students outside of the Carroll School are unable to declare the entrepreneurship co-concentration but are still welcome to take any entrepreneurship courses they are interested in.

Sophomore-Senior are eligible to take classes.
