Entrepreneurship Curriculum

The McIntire School and Galant Center offer UVA students numerous opportunities to gain academic experiences in the field of entrepreneurship. The Entrepreneurship Minor connects entrepreneurship efforts across multiple Schools at the University of Virginia through a coordinated and collective curriculum, hosted from the McIntire School. Within the minor, students select one of two concentrations: Technology Entrepreneurship, offered through coursework at the School of Engineering & Applied Sciences, or Social Entrepreneurship, offered through coursework at the Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy.

The School's Entrepreneurship Track provides a select number of fourth-year Commerce students with the unique opportunity to explore the entrepreneurship process, learn concepts and analytical tools that facilitate new-venture success, examine the sources of financing for a new venture, evaluate a start-up’s ability to make money, and generate attractive financial and personal returns for the entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship courses are also available for graduate students at UVA, from the Darden Graduate School of Business (via the electives in entrepreneurship, innovation, and strategy) as well as the UVA School of Law (via the John W. Glynn, Jr. Law & Business Program​).
