Entrepreneurial Academics

Entrepreneurship is often defined as “pursuing opportunities regardless of the resources one controls.” The UCF Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership in the College of Business Administration has created entrepreneurship programs to suit undergraduate students in all academic disciplines. Take a look at our curriculum offerings to see which ones best suit your needs and interests.

Undergraduate Programs

Entrepreneurship Certificate

Entrepreneurial thinking skills that help individuals recognize opportunities, organize resources, and implement plans are essential to launching new companies and innovative corporate ventures. The entrepreneurship certificate provides students with an interdisciplinary, experiential opportunity to learn how to develop and launch new ventures in a variety of industry settings. The certificate requires students to be admitted into a selective two-course New Venture Development cohort program that engages interdisciplinary teams in the process of designing and launching a new venture. The certificate is open to students in any discipline who are interested in innovation and new venture startup processes.

Entrepreneurship Minor

All UCF Undergraduates have the opportunity to realize their professional goals through the Entrepreneurship Minor. The 18-credit minor complements any degree program, providing students with business insights that are focused on career development more than ownership.

Technological Entrepreneurship Minor

The Technological Entrepreneurship Minor offers students an opportunity to blend deep discipline-specific expertise with broad entrepreneurial thinking skills. Combining disciplinary depth with entrepreneurial breadth promotes the introduction of innovations to society and creates economic rewards to those who champion those innovations. This minor will prepare students in any engineering, science, technology or business discipline to create, enhance or manage a technology venture.
