Louisiana State University (LSU) will soon be offering a degree in entrepreneurship at their main Baton Rouge location. The school already offers a minor in entrepreneurship and the option for management majors to focus in entrepreneurship.
The program could be available as early as next fall following more than $12 million raised by the business school.
Core classes such as accounting, economics, finance, and management will be offered alongside others tailored to entrepreneurship.
“We’re very excited about this, especially for some of the programs with more of a business-oriented focus,” said Bill Richardson, dean of the College of Agriculture.
The program will be partnering with four other schools, including engineering, art and design, music and agriculture to enhance the overall education experience.
The Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute at LSU has a mission to promote and foster entrepreneurial practices through education, outreach, and research.
