Entrepreneurship

Associate of Applied Business Degree Program
Entrepreneurship education at Gogebic Community College is designed to help prepare students for effective new venture creation and management. Students interested in Entrepreneurship will study the needs of new and emerging ventures and existing businesses. Students pursuing Entrepreneurship are challenged to pursue development of their own business ideas and opportunities and will develop their own business plan.

Not all students studying Entrepreneurship will establish new ventures immediately upon graduation. Therefore, the program is designed with the flexibility entrepreneurs require. Students will work closely with their academic advisor to create a customized degree plan to fit their personal needs and the specific needs of their type of venture.?
