Businesses, large and small, are coming to understand a new environment of rapid change. They are being challenged to take advantage of new markets and greater demands on current products. Their ability to adapt to a rapidly changing environment can yield great rewards, but it requires multifunctional and multitasking individuals able to form and develop new businesses and comfortably exist within a sea of change. The entrepreneurial management major provides current and future business professionals with the necessary skills and tools to successfully form and develop businesses and function as entrepreneurs or as productive members of entrepreneurial, emerging, or aggressively-positioned companies. These organizations require individuals that have the ability to manage risk, multitask across functional boundaries, and creatively engage and adapt to an environment that is constantly changing.
