Innovative programs, world-class degrees

The Center for Entrepreneurship at Wichita State University fosters and promotes entrepreneurial thinking through a wide range of academic and community programs. Located in the birthplace of many nationally known corporations, such as Pizza Hut and Koch Industries, the CFE has a strong support network of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors and WSU faculty and alumni.

The Center for Entrepreneurship, often touted as where the boardroom and the classroom marry, offers a major and minor in entrepreneurship, as well as a Masters of Business Administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship and innovation, along with hands-on learning opportunities that create a distinct advantage over programs elsewhere.
