Our Mission

The Center for Entrepreneurship promotes entrepreneurship to all UC students and the region's local startup community through exciting curriculum, trailblazing research and collaborative programming.

Our mission is to provide support not only for potential student entrepreneurs and scholars, but for people in the many organizations that interact with small, entrepreneurial, and family-owned businesses on a daily basis. We seek to collaborate with students and faculty across the university to remove barriers and create gateways to entrepreneurism.

The University of Cincinnati's Entrepreneurship program has been ranked one of the best in the United States by Entrepreneur Magazine, the Princeton Review, and Success Magazine.


Entrepreneurs and Managers

The center provides an array of valuable services to entrepreneurs, managers, and businesses, including consulting, executive education, and professional development. We serve both the leaders of new ventures and the executives of mature businesses endeavoring to be more entrepreneurial. These services are provided by UC faculty and students as well as professional affiliates of the center.


Entrepreneurship isn't just for business students. The center provides an array of valuable resources to UC students from all colleges, studying all disciplines, including awards and scholarships, funding opportunities, business competitions, and access to student organizations.
