Donna DeCarolis, founding Dean of the Close School of Entrepreneurship, adds, “The Close School provides focus on the person and process in its unique curriculum designed to build resilience, confidence, and leadership in budding entrepreneurs. The program has been growing and includes a required minor. It’s Entrepreneurship Co-op gives the student the experience in starting a business where failure is not frowned upon.”
Drexel University’s Close School of Entrepreneurship is the nation’s first freestanding school of entrepreneurship to offer degrees. Building on an outstanding foundation of curriculum, programming and thought leadership at Drexel, the Close School is the engine driving the expanded culture of entrepreneurship envisioned by the University’s strategic plan.
