Entrepreneurs and strategists excel at the single most challenging problem in business--creating value by aligning internal strengths and weaknesses with external opportunities and threats. Sometimes that involves creating entirely new companies, even entirely new industries. Often it involves leading innovation or technology commercialization in existing businesses. Students in the Strategy and Entrepreneurship track at the Leeds School of Business develop the skills to create and lead new ventures, to restructure business models, and to build high-performing entrepreneurial teams.
Our program gives students the confidence they need to successfully start businesses and lead companies. A defining trait of an entrepreneur is the desire to chart your own course. That could be starting your own firm, managing a family business, or buying a franchise right after your undergraduate studies or several years down the road. It could also be as a product manager, market analyst, or development team lead for an existing business, as firms increasingly recognize the importance of integrating entrepreneurship into their business strategies. Other career opportunities include consulting practices, business incubators, and research firms.
