One of the fastest growing majors on campus, Entrepreneurship gives students the knowledge, resources, and ability to be successful as a principled entrepreneur in the business field. The entrepreneurship major, founded in 2008, was awarded the “National Emerging Program Award” for 2011.
Students interested in entrepreneurship have the opportunity to participate in many engaging and stimulating activities throughout the year. These opportunities are open to any student at Kansas State. You have the chance to win a piece of the $20,000 in prize money given out during the Next Big Thing competition each spring semester. Next Big Thing participants submit a pitch and create a business plan for their proposed business idea.
The entrepreneurship major focuses on developing the business skills necessary to take creative and innovative ideas, and transform them into real business ventures. The major is a collaborative, cross-disciplinary program that combines courses in Management with new courses in Marketing and Finance, as well as offering electives from non-Business departments of Mass Communications and Agricultural Economics. While the major is focused on business students, some of the courses developed for the major are accessible by all Kansas State students with the belief that all can benefit from an entrepreneurial culture.
