Entrepreneurship Major

BBA in Entrepreneurship
C.T. Bauer College of Business

Degree Plan

Coursework Examples:

Entrepreneurship majors take the same UH core, Pre-business, and advanced level business core as all other business majors.  Required foundational advanced level business courses for this major are ENTR 3310 (Introduction to Entrepreneurship), ENTR 4320 (Entrepreneurial Revenue), ENTR 4330, (Entrepreneurial Costs and Budgets), ENTR 4340 (Entrepreneurial Organizations, Capitalization, and Funding), ENTR 4350 (Entrepreneurial Business Plan), and ENTR 4360 (Implementation of Entrepreneurial Business Plan).

Specialty Programs in Entrepreneurship:

The Entrepreneurship major is a specialty program within itself.  In addition to the full major/certificate program, WCE offers a Certificate in Corporate Entrepreneurship - a two-course certificate automatically awarded to students who successfully complete ENTR 3310 and ENTR 3312 (Intrapreneurship/Corporate Entrepreneurship).

Related Student Organizations:

Business student organizations exist to provide professional development for students in this major and related specialty programs.  To view a complete listing of UH Bauer College student organizations and how to join them, visit the Business Student Activities website.

Admissions

Students are not automatically admitted directly into the Entrepreneurship major.  Instead, all students who 1) apply and are accepted to UH, 2) request business as their major of choice on their application, and 3) meet UH Bauer College admission requirements are admitted to UH as Pre-business majors and are considered members of the Bauer College.  Current UH students may also become business majors after they begin at UH by meeting certain internal requirements and submitting an online request form. 

For specific UH and Pre-business admissions requirements, visit the UH Office of Admissions website or www.bauer.uh.edu/prospective.

After becoming Pre-business, students then change their major to a specific area (Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Management, Marketing, Management Information Systems, or Supply Chain Management) before or during their junior year.  Declaring a specific major area in business is called "filing a degree plan" and has specific UH GPA and course completion requirements.  

IMPORTANT ADMISSIONS NOTE: 

This major is the only selective major within the UH Bauer College of Business.  In addition to basic degree plan filing requirements, formal admittance into the Entrepreneurship program requires completion or concurrent enrollment in ENTR 3310, application, interview, and acceptance.  Applicants go through an intensive application process to qualify as one of only thirty-five students selected per year, and    application is only available in Fall semesters.  Students are not permitted to take 4000-level Entrepreneurship courses without being formally accepted into the program by WCE.

WCE Alumni have received offers as Business Development Coordinators, Assistant Managers, Administrative Coordinators, Procurement Buyers/Planners, and many have successfully started their own businesses and are currently self-employed.
