Entrepreneurship in the Classroom

UB offers several courses that foster the development of entrepreneurial skills and mindsets.

* The Entrepreneurship Lab is a hands-on, 3-credit course that equips students from all disciplines and degree programs with the skills to develop, launch and manage a successful new venture. eLab is for students who have entrepreneurial ideas but need help developing them prior to venture creation. Teams (if needed) should be formed before students enroll in the course.
