Business Entrepreneurship Degree

If you dream about being your own boss, start the journey to business ownership with Eastern Florida State College's Business Entrepreneurship Associate in Science degree program or a shorter term certificate program. We believe that blending classroom lessons with practical experience is the ideal preparation for creating, launching and operating a small business.

The A.S. degree curriculum includes a balanced combination of courses in general education, business-related subjects and covers all aspects of starting and operating a new business venture with an emphasis on the entrepreneurial skills needed for success. The program will give students an opportunity to evaluate their potential as entrepreneurs.

The Business Entrepreneurship A.S. degree also prepares students to pursue additional education in the business field, including moving on to EFSC's Organizational Management Bachelor Degree. Related certificate programs listed in the accordion below can be used to build toward the A.S. degree.

Apply for the A.S. degree or certificate through the general EFSC application process. Reach out to the program advisor for assistance in planning your entrepreneurship experience.
