Drexel University is introducing a new three-year bachelor’s degree program in entrepreneurship and innovation.

Based in the Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship, the program will offer students an experiential learning opportunity to work on their own start-up, family business or for an employer of their choice. Students in the program will graduate as early as two years ahead of students in a traditional bachelor’s degree program.

“The program caters to the most determined entrepreneurs that may find it challenging to balance four to five years of classes while also eager to start and grow their businesses,” says Donna De Carolis, founding dean of the Close School and professor of entrepreneurial leadership.

Courses will include “Ready, Set, Fail,” which prepares students for the risk associated with launching a business, how to appreciate and learn from failure, and how to use that knowledge to build future successes. Another course called “Social Entrepreneurship” will examine how people launch successful ventures aimed at addressing the world’s most challenging social and environmental problems.

“We have developed a curriculum that teaches resilience, collaboration, negotiation and communication,” says De Carolis. “The three-year degree program is particularly appealing to a student who is determined, disciplined and goal-oriented, as we find that many entrepreneurship students are.” The program is slated to launch in fall of 2020.
