The UNC System and Entrepreneurship

The UNC System has always been a seed bed of innovation in our curriculum and in cutting-edge research. Going forward, we know innovation and entrepreneurship will be even more critical to our success in the global economy. Individual institutions have their own initiatives to encourage more entrepreneurial activity on campuses and are connecting to larger initiatives in order to allow our campuses the ability to push toward a greater focus on entrepreneurship.

Across our University, campuses are offering majors and minors in entrepreneurship that are focused not only on business but also on social, commercial, and scientific disciplines. Universities are taking a holistic approach to entrepreneurship, seeking to infuse an entrepreneurial culture throughout campus.

The following links provide information about programs and curricula focused specifically around entrepreneurship:
