The Entrepreneurship Program

Saint Vincent College recognizes the critical convergence of business, technology and entrepreneurship and has developed an innovative Entrepreneurship minor that prepares students for leadership roles across a broad range of industries.

Our curriculum is designed to teach students how to turn an idea into a profitable product or service, how to effectively market new concepts and how to manage the financial demands of starting up a business. Our entrepreneurship initiatives serve as an important catalyst for regional innovation and economic development.

Incoming freshman may apply for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Scholarship. The Scholarship is awarded to two incoming freshman per year and requires 5 hours per week working at the SBDC center housed in the McKenna School.
