The entrepreneurship program, here at John Carroll University, opens doors for students who gain entrepreneurial skills and knowledge from our business and liberal arts faculty, and through hands-on experience with “real-life” entrepreneurs, members of the John Carroll Entrepreneur Association, who volunteer to coach our students. The Entrepreneurs Association, housed in the Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship, is a group of professionals, 80% of whom are principal shareholders of a private company that is at least five years old, with at least $1 million annual revenues.
The entrepreneurship minor combines the best of idea development, creativity, and entrepreneurship, culminating in an internship or the development of a complete plan for the enterprise. Students are able to gain hands-on experience prior to internships and development of plans through multiple student opportunities and programs.
A few of the exclusive programs offered to our students are highlighted in this section:
