The specialization in entrepreneurship and innovation equips students with the tools and concepts necessary for a career as an entrepreneur or an investor in entrepreneurial ventures.  A requirement for the specialization is one of the Foundations of Entrepreneurship courses, which offer a broad look at starting, funding and managing new businesses in a variety of sectors including services, manufacturing, high technology, and public service.  The specialization provides a valuable understanding of what it is like to work in a start-up venture, a growing small business, or a venture capital or private equity firm.
