Create. Innovate. Start.

Entrepreneurship at Marquette University encompasses an undergraduate major and minor in the College of Business Administration, a program in social entrepreneurship, classes in the MBA and EMBA programs, student project experiences both locally and globally, and close ties to a strong network of alumni and Milwaukee-area startup experts who provide their experience and mentorship.  An incubator space and portfolio of entrepreneurial resources are available on campus for startups.  The Kohler Center also hosts and records frequent talks and presentations on various entrepreneurial topics geared to offer firsthand startup expertise.  Each spring, students and members of the community can participate in the ImpactNext business model competition.
