At the Collat School of Business we teach students how to "think entrepreneurially." Through courses taught by accomplished entrepreneurs and world-class professors combined with real world experience in our Innovation Lab, students gain both fundamental knowledge and hands on practical experience working with real companies to solve real problems that will serve them well regardless of the career they pursue.

Each area listed below is designed to help you think entrepreneurially and innovatively.
