As a student, we’ll challenge you to exert evidence-based thinking and take creative risks to realize solutions for industry partners and Indiana communities. We call these hands-on experiences immersive learning, and they outfit you with a competitive edge.

Faculty mentors may invite you to apply for an immersive experience, or you may see one publicized through Ball State’s Office of Immersive Learning. Either way, you will need to apply for an open project. Your faculty advisor will then prompt you to enroll. With so many engaging immersive courses, we encourage you to sign up for several during your time at Ball State.

Centers, Institutes, and Labs

Ball State’s renowned Entrepreneurship Center, Weidner Center for Residential Property Management, Allègre Restaurant, and the Maplewood Mansion Learning Lab are among several Miller College centers and institutes that empower students through real-world learning alongside industry partners.

One of our signature learning experiences is "E-day," short for evaluation day, during which senior entrepreneurship majors present business plans to a panel of alumni and business leaders.

Just as entrepreneurs put everything on the line, so do these students—who pass or fail the class based on whether the executives accept their proposal. Learn more.
