Entrepreneurship Program

This innovative program offers students the opportunity to experience real-world problem solving through inquiry-based professional learning. Prominent business professionals mentor students throughout a year-long, UC-approved course where students are taught the nuances of product design, marketing strategy, and finance as they collaborate in teams to analyze existing business concerns. Using research and applied knowledge, their experiences culminate in "Shark Tank-like" presentations to their business mentors. Through profession-based inquiry, passions are discovered, self-confidence is built and students form professional networks giving them an early entry into the business world and the change to develop the needed skills to become the innovative leaders and job creators of tomorrow.
