The fastest growing major on campus, Entrepreneurship gives students the knowledge, resources, and ability to be successful as a principled entrepreneur in the business field. The entrepreneurship major was founded in 2008, and was awarded the "National Emerging Program Award" for 2011. The entrepreneurship department runs many engaging and stimulating activities throughout the year and welcomes any major across campus to participate. In addition, the Next Big Thing competition awards over $20,000 in prize money to K-State student each year who display their entrepreneurial talents while making real world ideas a reality.
The major in Entrepreneurship focuses on developing the business skills necessary to take creative and innovative ideas, and transform them into real business ventures. This 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 KSU students with the belief that all can benefit from an entrepreneurial culture.
