APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED from students in the classes of 2020 and 2021

The Entrepreneurship Fellows Program (EFP) is designed specifically for undergraduate students with an interest in understanding entrepreneurship. Open to students in all degree programs, Entrepreneurship Fellows explore the meaning of an entrepreneurial mindset and learn how to apply entrepreneurial problem-solving skills throughout their careers.

Entrepreneurship Fellows also get

  • preferred access to MSB entrepreneurship elective courses and events
  • access to startup internships (for credit) 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 220 – Foundation of Entrepreneurship
  • STRT 224 – Launching Entrepreneurial Ventures
  • MGMT 229 – Managing Entrepreneurial Ventures¬†(senior year)
  • Compete in the StartupHoyas Challenge Pitch Competition

In addition, students are strongly encouraged to take a course in accounting (such as ACCT 001), financial management and/or computer science/coding.

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.


Applications from students in the classes of 2020 and 2021 should be submitted no later than October 31, 2018. Students are advised to check with their respective deans to make sure there are no conflicts with other degree or certificate requirements.
