Entrepreneurial Courses – University of Nebraska Omaha

The redesigned Innovation and Entrepreneurship undergraduate curriculum will equip UNO graduates to start and lead companies by developing the full set of skills required.

About

Success in starting and managing a small- or high-growth business requires a variety of skills that go far beyond the preparation of a business plan. 

Startups in particular are different from established businesses and have been defined as temporary organizations in search of a business model that is scalable and repeatable. 

The development of a successful business model requires high levels of customer interaction, the ability to analyze and collect customer and market data, and the selection and management of high performance teams.

The redesigned Innovation and Entrepreneurship undergraduate curriculum will equip UNO graduates to start and lead companies by developing the full set of skills required.
