With a vision of developing job creators instead of job seekers, the Center for Entrepreneurship at the Gary E. West College of Business has developed a program designed to provide students across educational disciplines the practical classroom and experiential-based entrepreneurship instruction necessary to enable them to pursue a career as an entrepreneur, or to become a creative “intrapreneur” within a larger business.
When entrepreneurship training and support is mobilized around the talent base of a community, everyone can win:
- An accounting student learns how to start a successful firm, an art student learns to become an artist, a scientist learns how to innovate
- Entrepreneurial skills make students more employable and ultimately more valuable to a business owner
- Entrepreneurial learning promotes success
- Young entrepreneurs start small businesses… that create jobs… that create economic growth
West Liberty University provides the foundation for entrepreneurship among its students with a curriculum that includes:
- Entrepreneurship appreciation classes
- Practical classroom instruction
- Interdisciplinary classes that apply practical entrepreneurial concepts to specific fields of study
- Upper division electives that accommodate the entrepreneurial interests of a student
