Entrepreneurship

  • Program Description

    At Seattle University's Entrepreneurship Center, we have a mission: ROI3.  That's visual shorthand for our three cornerstone principles: Return on Imagination, Return on Involvement and Return on Investment.  We build and nourish the entrepreneurial spirit.  To us, entrepreneurship is more than a collection of courses.  It's a philosophy, a mindset that inspires innovation, risk-taking, and seizing opportunities in any form of business venture.  We're also about shaping leaders of the future, and that means linking students with the business community.  We view education as an investment and are determined to provide value to all our stakeholders.
