Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies


The Greif Center offers a wide range of courses in entrepreneurship designed for students who want to start or own a high-growth business, join an emerging business or participate in an entrepreneurial venture in a mature corporation (intrapreneurship). Students can develop an entrepreneurial mindset, gain confidence that they can be successful entrepreneurs, learn about the entrepreneurial process and enhance their conceptual and practical skills to pursue new business opportunities. Wide exposure is given to all types of entrepreneurs and industries. The highly experiential courses span the entrepreneurial process from opportunity discovery to venture initiation, growth and exit, and are designed to teach relevant frameworks and theory as well as to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and skills through hands-on application. The Greif Center also offers co-curricular programs such as venture competitions, speaker events and a new venture incubator, and it actively provides contact with and support for its alumni.
