Entrepreneurship at San Diego State University (SDSU) has spread through every College across the entire campus. Due to the high demand of entrepreneurship curriculum, the undergraduate programs has expanded. In addition to the entrepreneurship specialization for Management majors, there is now an entrepreneurship minor for business students and a minor for nonbusiness students. SDSU has a legacy of graduates who have gone on to create companies like Costco, Volcom, Wahoo's, Union Bank, Jack in the Box, Colorspot Nursery and many others. Since 1986, the SDSU entrepreneurship program has supported those have a desire to solve problems and create solutions.

Students at SDSU develop entreprenuer knowhow and competencies through sound curriculum and experiential learning (internships, clubs, mentoring, competitions, etc.). Our program lets students explore the ins-and-outs of family business and franchising, as well as international and social ventures. Students who participate in the program learn how to develop frameworks for creativity and innovation, are able to identify ideas and opportunities, conduct feasibility analysis, and craft business plans. Moreover, they enhance other critical skills that involve financial modeling, assessment tools, and the enhancement of oral and written communication skills.

Outside of the classroom you will be presented with numerous opportunities to gain experience and develop your network. You will have the opportunity to compete in business plan competitions through Venture Start, showcase your business at Entrepreneur Day, or become a Lavin Entrepreneur and take advantage of mentoring from successful local entrepreneurs. As a student at SDSU you can also join the Entrepreneur Society to network with other like minded students. In addition, the Lavin Center offers an Internship Program to give students the opportunity to gain experience with local businesses.

Join us at San Diego State University and begin the journey on your entrepreneurial life.
