Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship powers the American and global economy and is focused on opportunity recognition, creativity and innovation, and new venture creation. K-state Entrepreneurship students will develop the necessary skills to make innovative ideas become a reality, specifically by:

  • Developing an understanding of the entrepreneurial process – from idea generation to the implementation of the new business or social venture.
  • Gaining the ability to identify, research, and analyze potential markets that would enhance value and profitability.
  • Developing an understanding of the concept of risk and how its effect on new ventures can be minimized.
  • Demonstrating the capacity to identify and acquire the resources needed for the creation and implementation of a new venture.
