Why BU for Entrepreneurship?
To study entrepreneurship at a business college is one thing. To study at a major urban research university…
- with professional and personal ties to the financial, high tech, biotech, medical, and engineering community
- located in the nation’s highest concentration of education and research
- with programs and ongoing research in biochemistry, biomedical engineering, astrophysics, photonics, aeronautical engineering, sustainable technologies, information systems, information technology, medical research, medical equipment, intellectual property law, financial modeling, supply chain management, consumer marketing, and more,
- with skill-building entrepreneurial boot camps, competitions, one-to-one faculty guidance, and multiple networking opportunities with technical and financial communities,
- with an international alumni base of 330,000, many of whom seek ventures, partnerships, and investments,
- and with a University president and administration promoting the theory–and more importantly, the practice–of One BU (the sharing of resources across all departments and disciplines)
…you begin to see the benefits of BU.
We’re based in the School of Management, though we serve the entire university. The School of Management is home to a group of faculty from various disciplines whose specialty is entrepreneurship. They have started and grown their own businesses, and today consult with others doing the same. They’re joined by associations with faculty at the School of Medicine and College of Engineering, and by other important resources at Boston University including the Office of Technology Development and University’s two business incubators.
You can study entrepreneurship at many places. You can live it at Boston University.
