Principals of Entrepreneurship

The James F. Dicke College of Business Administration offers two courses to support learning about innovation and entrepreneurship at Ohio Northern University and how and why to start a business:

Principles of Entrepreneurship (ABUS 222; no prerequisites) introduces students to the entrepreneurial mindset and the challenges of starting and running a successful business. Students create or select ideas to turn into persuasive speeches or business “elevator pitches.” They learn how to turn their great ideas into business opportunities. Student competitions, both on and off campus, are a planned part of the course experience, as are meetings with successful entrepreneurs.


ONU is a member of Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN). Development and growth of ONU's entrepreneurship education efforts have benefited from substantial support of the Kern Family Foundation.
