Wake Forest University’s School of Business prides itself on an integrated, leadership-focused curriculum. All students complete required first-year core course work, which establishes a foundation for Wake Forest’s entrepreneurial approach to business problem solving. During the second year, students choose a narrower career concentration, but entrepreneurship remains at the forefront. For students planning to start their own business, Wake Forest provides resources through its Angell Center for Entrepreneurship. Included among these are entrepreneurial internships, for which students receive credit for creating unique teaching cases with the knowledge they gathered via their internship. The school also houses a Family Business Center to offer management training and networking resources to students involved in a family business.
