Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is creating or seizing an opportunity.

As a student at Webster University pursuing a degree or certificate in entrepreneurship, you'll learn how to vigorously work toward developing an idea, overcome obstacles and take calculated risks to ensure the success of the idea.

Webster University's entrepreneurship program empowers students to explore innovative approaches to start new ventures or help grow existing ventures. Students learn how to recognize and assess business opportunities, conduct economic and resource feasibility analyses and develop an entrepreneurial plan of action. Expert faculty promote entrepreneurial thinking among students and help them to develop the necessary real-world skills for founding and growing an entrepreneurial venture.

Students demonstrate these skills by developing and presenting a viable business plan to a review panel made up of successful entrepreneurs in the capstone course. Opportunities to connect with the entrepreneurship community, conduct research and get involved in the Entrepreneurship Club help students build a network of connections and rsources that are vital to success. 

As part of the degree program, qualified  students  may apply to participate in an elective experiential learning course Entrepreneurship Practicum. Undergraduate students in a wide variety of degree programs can opt to add a targeted certificate in entrepreneurship with an emphasis in the following areas: 

  • Business
  • Audio Production
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Sports Business
