Close School of Entrepreneurship

In today's extremely competitive global workforce, there is an increased value and demand for initiative, independence, innovation, and the intellectual dexterity to rethink of old ways of doing things and invent new ones. The Charles D. Close School has pioneered an approach to entrepreneurship education that addresses this need by teaching students to be entrepreneurial thinkers and doers, preparing them to meet the world market on solid footing and to create their own opportunities.

The Close School defines entrepreneurship as more than starting a company or sparking innovation within established organizations. At the Close School, entrepreneurship is a habit of mind and attitude; a skill set applicable to pursuing innovation in business, personal and career contexts; we assist students in cultivating an approach to life build around innovative thinking, calculated daring and proactive behavior.

Within our unique curriculum, students learn skills such as resilience, collaboration, negotiation and communication. The Close School's academic programs prepare students to face the challenges of self-employment and new venture creation in an evolving 21st century workforce.
