Business that can 'change the world'

Open Modal

As your freshman year draws to a close, you’ll take an important professional step and declare a concentration in at least one of our principal fields of business. D’Amore-McKim students who concentrate in Entrepreneurship & Innovation do it all in an environment that prioritizes new ventures, with Northeastern’s Center for Entrepreneurship Education, the Center for Family Business, and the Social Enterprise Institute offering students rich support for specialized entrepreneurial activity.

Choose from three tracks of study—technology entrepreneurship, family business entrepreneurship, and social entrepreneurship—and learn from faculty who have flourished as entrepreneurs, innovators, and researchers. They’ll teach you to assess personal aptitude and potential for small business, find and evaluate business opportunities, and secure essential funding.

Curriculum Details

Find the full set of Entrepreneurship concentration requirements , in Northeastern’s Course Catalog. Concentrations are taken as a complement to one of the business degree programs offered, including the BS in Business Administration and the BS in International Business. Upperclassmen: Please consult the Course Catalog appropriate to your class year and your academic advisor to ensure your coursework is on track.

After taking one entrepreneurial elective in this subject area, I was hooked. This class shaped the rest of my Northeastern career, co-op experiences, and my future plans.

If you concentrate in Entrepreneurship you should push yourself to gain exposure to as much of the field as you can and try to tie it back into what you learn in the classroom.
