Students pursuing the Entrepreneurship and Innovation concentration take four classes as outlined below.

All business students with one concentration take a broadening course and either an international or experiential business course. Business students pursuing an Entrepreneurship and Innovation concentration may NOT take an experiential course to meet this requirement. Instead, students pursuing an Entrepreneurship and Innovation concentration should take a broadening course and an international course. This is because an experiential course is already a part of the concentration. Students pursuing an Entrepreneurship and Innovation concentration along with another concentration do not need to take a broadening course. They must take an international course.
