The undergraduate entrepreneurship program at Michigan State University is 3.5 years old, and our program is now getting a top to bottom review. Our Provost is looking at the best permanent "home" for MSU's entrepreneurship program. Toward that end I've been asked to do some benchmarking and data gathering about what other universities are doing.
Our undergraduate entrepreneurship program is campus-wide, and our Minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is open to all students regardless of major or home college. As such we have nearly 600 students earning a Minor in E&I. Those students represent well over 100 unique majors. So we have a very broad program that has to appeal to a very wide swath of our students. We believe that one campus-wide program, which can be tailored by each department, is preferable to a variety of programs in different colleges.
Toward that, I'm interested in learning the following. I'm grateful to anyone who can provide guidance via email, but I'd also be happy to arrange a short phone call.
Many thanks, in advance.
