When you first step foot on the University of San Diego campus, it’s easy to be left in awe — of its vistas, its viewpoints, its storied arches. You can literally feel the energy of brilliant minds all around you. It’s the perfect place to get inspired. And better yet, campus is full of resources to harness BIG ideas. 

Namely, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center at the USD School of Business empowers entrepreneurs with the values, knowledge, skills, and attitudes that enable them to create world-changing innovations that address humanity’s most urgent challenges and opportunities. 

“The entrepreneurial journey can be arduous, complex and filled with career detours,” says Tim Keane, dean of the USD School of Business. “Recognizing that entrepreneurial skills are honed through experience and persistence, the USD School of Business has created a pathway to enable our "Toreropreneurs" to learn the innovation, design, and systems thinking necessary to speed their journey toward success.”

The Toreropreneur Journey, as coined by the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center, guides students along a path that begins with exploring opportunities and tapping into their creative selves and ends with launching an actual business before graduating. By mapping out the entrepreneurial journey at USD, students can be sure to take advantage of every opportunity on campus that enables them to embrace their inner entrepreneur. 

As best said by Priya Kannan-Narasimhan, founding director of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Catalyzer and professor, “entrepreneurs aren’t born, they’re made.” And with the Toreropreneur Journey, entrepreneurs are made right here at USD.
