“I chose to pursue a major in Entrepreneurship because of the unlimited career path possibilities. The Entrepreneurship major gave me a complete paradigm shift in the types of opportunities I was granted access to while at school and since graduating. One of which is learning software development and computer programming through a tech startup called Nuvi right in the heart of our very own Silicon Slopes! There is an abundance of resources that are available to help you create literally anything you want and bring it to life.”

Aron Persing, CEO, Call it Home

“The entrepreneurship program helps you think like an entrepreneur. It gives you the foundations and resources you need to be successful at starting your own business, and helped provide me the skills to be able to start my own business only a few years after graduating. It is a great way to start your entrepreneurial career.”
