Entrepreneurship Curriculum

Below is the current course catalog information. To view more information and an overview visit the course section in the catalog.

In the School of Business entrepreneurship classes, students learn foundational leadership and venture-vetting skills appropriate for starting a new business, advancing in their current company or joining a brand-new business (versus one that’s already established).

Throughout the program, students learn to think just like a founder or C-level executive, including how to identify potential socially innovative opportunities, prepare business plans and deal with legal issues. With our close connections to the San Diego business community, students have the opportunity to network with industry leaders both in and outside of the classroom.
