Urban Entrepreneurship Practicum
In Urban Entrepreneurship, you will experience what it takes to make lasting improvements in urban quality-of-life through the creation of innovative for-profit businesses. Governments, foundations, and not-for-profit companies have long been associated with efforts to address urban community needs, but despite those efforts, significant needs persist. Entrepreneurs have a long history of service to urban communities, and rapidly accelerating technology and innovation in a variety of fields give rise to unprecedented opportunities for solving previously intractable problems, and for scaling the solutions.

***Attention international students on F-1 Visas: All individual course projects with external clients require the use of part-time CPT. In order to be eligible to use CPT, a student must have been lawfully enrolled on a full-time basis while physically present in the US for one academic year (i.e. two full consecutive terms). These measures are in place to protect your visa status. See the International Center’s website for more information.
