Entrepreneurial Spirit

Regardless of whether you are starting a new business, working for a large corporation or building a nonprofit organization, innovation and initiative are necessary to success. At the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, we teach entrepreneurship as the new leadership model for the 21st century. Every organization can benefit from entrepreneurial leadership skills: innovative thinking, identifying opportunities, creating new products, acquiring critical resources, building strong teams, designing marketing strategies and managing growth and development.

We teach the skills of entrepreneurship through innovative curriculum, student-led initiatives and community-based programs. Our entrepreneurship minor, available to any USU student, is offered in-class and online, so that traditional and non-traditional students can take advantage of learning the skills of building their businesses and their careers. Our Small Enterprise Education and Development program (SEED) offers students an opportunity to apply what they are learning by helping entrepreneurs in developing countries. Another great source for entrepreneurs is the Entrepreneurship Club, a student-led organization that sponsors a number of competitions, workshops and conferences throughout the year.

The programs and activities offered by the Huntsman School of Business allow our students to bridge the gap between formal classroom education (knowing) and real-world experience (doing). We are not content to just discuss entrepreneurship; we put ideas into practice. It is all part of our mission to inspire students to “Dare Mighty Things.”
