    The purpose of the entrepreneurship major is to prepare students to create their own opportunities through our top-ranked, and highly experiential entrepreneurship curriculum. This major will teach students how to discover and create opportunities, and pursue them through the creation of new products and services. Students will develop the diverse range of foundational skills necessary for them to become effective entrepreneurs.

    Core entrepreneurship courses include: application and theory of leadership, discovery of market opportunities, creation of new business opportunities, testing and validation of business models and venture concepts, getting financing, creation of performance measures, interpretation of data, and marketing. The entrepreneurship-focused Global Perspectives I course (Global Challenges for the Entrepreneur), will teach students how to find and work with international contract manufacturers and supplies along with fundamentals of market entry - importing, exporting, contracts, and alliances.

    Students will participate in highly experiential programs and activities offered by the Lassonde Institute at the Lassonde Studios, which is one of the most innovative entrepreneurship spaces in the world.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
