Entrepreneurship and Business Development Major
“Since I was in high school, I knew I didn’t want to work for someone else. When I learned of this major and saw the courses I would be taking, I knew it was exactly what I wanted. I was even more enthused when I saw the introductory video and heard Daniel Diez Canseco say that we wouldn’t graduate unless we had a business that was a going concern. I knew it was right for me. Now that I’m taking courses such as Entrepreneurial Spirit and Perspective of Ideas and Business Opportunities, I feel good about what I’m learning”.
