The Entrepreneurship Fellows Program (EFP) Is designed specifically for undergraduate students with an interest in entrepreneurship. Open to students in all degree programs, the program develops the tools and mindset needed to succeed in an entrepreneurial environment.
Entrepreneurship Fellows get
- preferred access to entrepreneurship courses and events
- access to internships and first-hand exposure to startup life
- introductions to experienced entrepreneurs and mentors, and
- the chance to connect with peers who share your interest in entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship Fellows must complete the following course sequence:
- STRT 280 – Foundations of Entrepreneurship
- STRT 295 – Launching the Venture
- MGMT 208 – Entrepreneurial Practicum, which consists of at least 120 hours of supervised practical work
- Compete in the StartupHoyas Challenge Pitch Competition
In addition, business school students must complete ACCT 101, while non-business school students must complete ACCT 001. A course in computer science/coding or technology may be accepted as a substitute for this requirement at the discretion of the program directors. (Note: Business Minors from the College are required to take ACCT 101 instead of ACCT 001.)
Fellows will meet regularly throughout the program to work on potential venture ideas with mentors, faculty and other advisors. There is some flexibility in scheduling these courses to allow students who spend a semester abroad to complete the fellowship.
The application for the Class of 2019 is coming soon. The application will be due in late October. Students applying from outside the McDonough School of Business should check with their respective deans to make sure there are no conflicts with other degree or certificate requirements.
