Mount St. Mary’s University adds new major in entrepreneurship


Entrepreneurship major announcementEMMITSBURG, Md. (September 19, 2017) - Mount St. Mary’s University announces a new undergraduate major and minor in entrepreneurship which will be offered beginning spring 2018. The programs offer a unique interdisciplinary approach to understanding the art and science of business development, management and organizational leadership in today’s complex, networked world. The curriculum combines in-classroom activities with experiential, hands-on problem solving through a guided process of problem solving.

“Entrepreneurship is part of the culture at the Mount,” said Mount St. Mary’s President Timothy E. Trainor, Ph.D. “Many of our graduates become entrepreneurs because they see a societal issue that needs to be addressed and then they marshal the passion, advocacy and resources of others to develop and deliver a solution. This major now gives our undergraduate students a way to acquire these skills – through a combination of in-class and hands-on learning – so they may make an even greater positive impact on society.”

While the major helps students start new businesses, that is not its sole focus. Those seeking an educational pathway based on constant discovery while developing a personal tool box of skills and leadership will acquire the building blocks needed to progress as lifelong learners, leaders and contributors of positive impact to their local and global communities.

“The art and science of bringing innovation and collaborative leadership to our world starts with owning a well-developed, integrated personal tool box, focused on positive impact,” said entrepreneurship major advisor and Director of the Palmieri Center for Entrepreneurship, Christine Adamow. “The Mount’s program is open to anyone who has ever had inventive ideas, creative solutions, challenged the norm, dreamed, or wants to change the world through positive problem solving.”
