Entrepreneurship Major Overview
One of the country's few research university-based undergraduate majors in entrepreneurship, the University of Arizona's award-winning New Venture Development Program at the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship offers a one-year interdisciplinary curriculum designed to prepare selected students for success as entrepreneurs and business leaders. Ranked in the nation's top 10 programs, the McGuire Entrepreneurship Program integrates theory and application. This is a senior-year program and interested students must complete an application and interview during the winter of their junior year. It is a fall-start program only; courses are not available in the summer.
Students in the program focus on analysis, decision making and business planning, and benefit from the perspectives of both academic and adjunct faculty, working together to provide integrated and relevant curriculum including the latest business trends and techniques.
Please note that you cannot select this major at the time you apply for Professional Admission. You need to select your primary major at that time, then later apply for Entrepreneurship.
