Our Mission and Values

As an independent school of entrepreneurship, we teach an entrepreneurial mindset and practice through experiential methods, excellent teaching, thought leadership and creative programming - thus igniting students’ careers and personal aspirations.

We push our students to start something, to fail, and to start over again. As we coach them through this process, our mission is to foster an entrepreneurial mindset together with acquiring the skill set inherent to the entrepreneurial process.

Our mission is carried out through our shared values held by faculty staff, students, alumni, and partners:

Curiosity

The desire to know and to hold interests that lead to inquiry.

Excellence

Achievement and engagement in learning, scholarship, creativity and service for students, faculty, staff and administration.

Integrity

The commitment to moral, honest, responsible, fair and respectful trusting behavior.

Optimism

The hope for, and confidence in, future success.

Resilience

The capacity to adapt to stressful or challenging circumstances.

Community

A feeling of fellowship and collegiality, and a sharing of attitudes, interest and goals.
