Concentration in Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship at the Gabelli School of Business is more than an area of study. It’s a mind-set. Entrepreneurs are game-changers-who

  • Think differently
  • Innately sense opportunity
  • Come up with creative solutions
  • And chase those solutions with an uncommon drive.

We teach that mind-set.

Our entrepreneurship coursework teaches students to think outside traditional lines and capitalize on opportunities, even in tough business situations. Entrepreneurship students at the Gabelli School benefit from

  • Academics: Courses that build confidence, risk tolerance, and professional networks
  • Community: An active Entrepreneurship Society, a Compass Fellowship program for new ventures, entrepreneurship-focused career fairs, and more
  • Fordham Foundry: Our incubator that helps students launch their own small businesses
  • Student Companies: A thriving group of student-run ventures, on-campus and off
  • TrepCon: An annual entrepreneurship conference featuring national-caliber speakers
