Entrepreneurship Concentration


Since 1997, the Entrepreneurship Center (Eship Center) has fostered a culture of entrepreneurship at UNC. As an MBA enrichment concentration, our focus is not job placement. Instead, our goal is to establish the leading U.S. business school-based entrepreneurship program that prepares you to build an entrepreneurial mindset and successfully transition to entrepreneurship through the course of your career.

All entrepreneurship courses at UNC Kenan-Flagler are electives, allowing you to immerse yourself in a tailored curriculum. A factor that sets our offerings apart is that the curriculum is complemented with innovative co-curricular offerings that enrich your learning experience.

Students may choose from three paths within the Entrepreneurship Enrichment Concentration: FounderFunder or Growth Executive/Intrapreneur.

  • Founder competencies, curriculum choices, and co-curricular offerings are most appropriate for individuals seeking to start a new enterprise or join an early-stage venture on the management team.
  • Funder curriculum choices and co-curricular offerings are recommended for individuals preparing to join professional investing groups in venture capital and private equity and learn private investing techniques.
  • Growth executive/intrapreneur competencies, curriculum choices, and co-curricular offerings are recommended for those who would like to acquire skills to manage a growth-oriented private venture or serve as an intrapreneur in an existing enterprise.
