Department of Entrepreneurship, International Business and Strategy

The Department of Entrepreneurship, International Business and Strategy offers degree programs in Entrepreneurship and Innovation as well as International Business. Both include a rigorous and rounded academic curriculum complemented by extracurricular and service-learning involvement in the region’s business activity. Our degree programs establish a foundation in sound business practices along with an appreciation and understanding of the arts and sciences.

Students hone the skills necessary for successful application of their cutting-edge knowledge in a business or other organizational setting. The majors offer specific functional courses that provide students with the theoretical foundations needed for critical thinking and solid business decision making; a focus on developing key conceptual, analytical and practical competencies, frequent interaction with the local business community as well as opportunities for internships and field projects. The programs educate students who are interested in starting their own business, working in a family business or working for an established business or startup. 

The department provides many opportunities for experiential learning and direct contact with businesses, practitioners and entrepreneurs both within and outside of the classroom. Some examples of these opportunities include study abroad programs, international internships, business model competitions and student clubs. The Entrepreneurship Club is a Quinnipiac University chapter of the national Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization, dedicated to bolstering inventive students, their ideas and their entrepreneurial spirit. The club brings in entrepreneur speakers and holds events promoting student entrepreneurs on campus. The International Business Society is a student organization that is active in establishing and strengthening ties with local companies through projects on export and foreign market entry for local business and entrepreneurs.
