Entrepreneurship Career Opportunities
Entrepreneurship is what powers the economy, and students develop the skills and contacts necessary to make ideas real. An entrepreneurship major from Shippensburg University will prepare students for any one of the following career tracks: corporate entrepreneurship, also known as intrapreneurship, where our graduates develop new operations or products for existing corporations; independent entrepreneurship, where our graduates start their own for-profit firms; family business, where our graduates go into the family firm as new or future management; and social entrepreneurship, where our graduates start new or develop existing not-for-profit or community service oriented firms.
More specifically, when company recruiting ads use words like leading-edge or talk about developing new products or markets, they are talking about corporate entrepreneurship. When government and civic organizations talk about becoming more innovative and proactive, they are building on the growing social entrepreneurship movement. As always, if you have an idea of your own, for a product, a service, or just a way of life for yourself, there is no alternative to going independent. For any of these goals, an entrepreneurship major from Shippensburg University can get you where you want to be.
