The entrepreneurship major offered by Temple University’s Fox School of Business and Management integrates entrepreneurship theory and practice in an interdisciplinary approach to develop an understanding of the creation and management of an entrepreneurial business. The entrepreneurship major prepares students to start a business, be a productive member of an entrepreneurial business, assume responsibilities in a family business or become an effective manager in a growing business. Entrepreneurship majors create an idea for a new business, assess its feasibility, and develop a business plan. Students also experience at least one internship. Entrepreneurship majors are expected to be active members in the Entrepreneurial Student Association (ESA). Go to www.temple.edu/esa for information on the ESA.
