Creighton Entrepreneurship Program Selected as National Finalist
Creighton University’s Entrepreneurship Program has been named one of three finalists for the Outstanding Emerging Entrepreneurship Program by the U.S. Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE).
Program Director Ann York, Ph.D., will present the Creighton program during finalist rounds at the 2010 USASBE Conference in January. The Creighton Entrepreneurship Program was among 44 submissions.
The award is given to a program that has been in existence for three years or less. Creighton's Bioscience Entrepreneurship Program (BEP), which began in 2008, is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Partnerships for Innovation program. Creighton’s BEP is the first program of its kind in the nation, and is an interdisciplinary, team-based certificate program that brings together students from science, health sciences, law and business to learn how to commercialize bioscience research. Creighton’s College of Business also offers a professional science master’s degree in bioscience management. The master’s degree is an interdisciplinary program offering graduate students and working professionals the opportunity to study the business of science.
