The Entrepreneurship and Innovation classes at Wharton provide a cross-departmental set of skills, analytical tools, perspectives, and experiences to prepare students for careers as autonomous entrepreneurs, family-business entrepreneurs, or entrepreneurs in corporate settings.
Whether a student wants to start a business while in school, join an emerging business, or set the groundwork to launch a new firm later in a career, the concentration prepares students for all of these exciting options by examining both entrepreneurial innovation and its surrounding ecosystem.
