Entrepreneurship

An Entrepreneurship degree provides students broad, intellectual, and practical skills, and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge in real-world settings. What better way to develop these broad skills then by studying abroad? Students will learn to identify opportunities, solve problems, test and validate assumptions, execute, and present while traveling through France, Australia, Ghana, or many other destinations. Students can also earn a Certificate in Entrepreneurship  at John Cabot University regardless of their discipline!

  • Students may take courses that satisfy some requirements in their Entrepreneurship major or the General Education program. Be sure to begin planning at least six months in advance. 
  • Students should make sure they will have met prerequisites such as language and other foundation courses before they go abroad; it is important that students have prepared themselves adequately in the language of the country they will be visiting to maximize their study abroad learning experience.
