The Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship BDP teaches students about the entrepreneurial process and the history of innovation in the United States and around the world. Through an interdisciplinary program that combines courses from Business, Communication, Fine Arts, and Liberal Arts, students will learn how ideas, inventions, talents, and skills are developed and transformed into commercial and social ventures. At the same time, the program asks students to learn about creativity and the creative process within their own disciplines or fields.
With its focus on creativity in all fields, from the sciences to classical music to chemical engineering, this BDP can complement a range of majors, teaching students about the business and entrepreneurial skills needed to turn ideas and talents into ventures, and providing them with social and historical perspectives on innovation and its impact on economies, cultures, and societies.
An interdisciplinary faculty panel works with students to tailor their coursework to fit their interests, and to identify research and internship opportunities.
