At the Feliciano Center, creative spark and innovative ideas meet the tools to develop them into successful ventures. Part of the Feliciano School of Business, the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation is a resource for the entire campus, not just students pursuing a business degree. The Center supports a Concentration in Entrepreneurship, a Minor in Entrepreneurship, a Certificate of Entrepreneurship, and a Certificate in Innovation Design. Our highly interactive and experiential courses teach students the mindset of an entrepreneur, a valuable attitude that can help graduates succeed in any career. Our curriculum also helps students develop and enhance real-world skills that many employers desire today. With every industry changing so rapidly, employers want to hire people who are entrepreneurial, creative, innovative and problem-solvers. Our courses will show you how to be that employee.
We aim to blur the line where the campus ends and the entrepreneurial community begins. We do this by hosting a dozen or more free events annually to bring startup founders and innovators to campus to network with our students. We also send students out to co-op internships at startups. The Feliciano Center also has a special mission to nurture women entrepreneurs through program development, mentorship and events, such as Women Entrepreneurship Week.
