[QOTM #3] Entrepreneurship


#1

Inspired by all the applicant questions we get about schools´ entrepreneurship programs or clubs: Ambassadors, what´s the scoop? Where can entrepreneurs plug in? What do you find your program offers to entrepreneurs? Applicants, you asked so you´ve probably been researching it. What did you find? Ask about it here!

At USC, there are definitely multiple places for Entrepreneurs to plug in. We have a club dedicated to Entrepreneurship (EVMA - https://clubs.marshall.usc.edu/evma/about/). Several of my classes this past year have been put on by our Entrepreneurship department (https://www.marshall.usc.edu/departments/lloyd-greif-center-entrepreneurial-studies).

For those looking to start something while at school, USC has an incubator tied to the Lloyd Greif center: http://incubate.usc.edu/tag/blackstone-launchpad/

As for the student body, from conversations with my classmate, there definitely seems to be a vibe that many of us will be starting something on our own either just after graduation or within the next 5 years.
