Valuing a Bachelor Degree in Entrepreneurship – The LMU Experience

A chapter in The Great Debates in Entrepreneurship, 2017, vol. 27, pp 73-85 from Emerald Publishing Ltd

Abstract: Abstract We discuss the value of a Bachelor’s Degree in Entrepreneurship. We do this in part by responding to some of the most common criticisms for the perceived shortcoming of the degree. Some of the issues addressed include the benefit of a major over a minor; the advantage of experience versus education; and the degree’s effectiveness in preparing students for an entrepreneurial career. We base most of the responses on our experiences at Loyola Marymount University. We conclude by pointing out that the Entrepreneurship degree can serve as a powerful foundation for the right type of students.
