Chair’s Welcome

Mary WhiteI am so excited and proud to welcome you to the Department of Entrepreneurship and Professional Development where our focus is providing entrepreneurship education and professional development for students in the College of Business.

Our desire is to heighten awareness of the significant role entrepreneurship plays in the state and national economies, respond to the nation’s demands for an increased entrepreneurial workforce and increasing opportunities for students to achieve their personal and professional objectives of earning a degree in entrepreneurship.

To our students who desire self-employment as a career option or are budding entrepreneurs, we invite you to choose entrepreneurship as a major. We challenge you to take risks, trust your instincts, and learn from today's most accomplished entrepreneurs.

On behalf of our “E” Team of accomplished faculty and staff, we extend our best wishes to you and ask that you visit or contact us for assistance.

Dr. Mary M. White, Chair
