Entrepreneurship Major

From your very first semester at York College in the Entrepreneurship program, you'll get the chance to start developing a business. We emphasize experiential learning, getting you in teams right away so you can learn by doing.

The Entrepreneurship major prepares graduates for three career paths: to start a business sooner rather than later, join a family enterprise and take it to the next level, and become an entrepreneur within a large organizational setting. 

You'll continue to be engaged in entrepreneurial activities by starting a small on-campus business, participating in an elevator pitch competition, working with entrepreneurs in the field, creating business models and marketing plans and other hands-on activities.  These help build self-confidence and business acumen and prepare you for graduation and a world of possibility.

Careers in Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship major is applicable to all functional disciplines looking to gain an edge as well as starting or owning a business. 

Positions include:

  • Small Business Owners
  • Franchisees
  • Venture Capitalists
  • Internal or Corporate Entrepreneurs
  • Small Business Consultants

"Professionalism to me is being accountable, reliable, and hard working. With those three skills and a solid knowledge base, success will follow."
