A Pioneer in Entrepreneurship Education

Founded in 1983 by Dr. Donald F. Kuratko, Ball State’s Entrepreneurship Center in the Department of Management was among the country’s first program to focus on an undergraduate entrepreneurship degree. Today, we focus on developing problem solving skills, innovative thinking, and an entrepreneurial mindset within our students.
