Entrepreneurial Toolkit

Home / Entrepreneurial Toolkit / Curriculum


Entrepreneurship coursework at Fordham combines elements from the full spectrum of business, including marketing, finance, venture capital, accounting, management, and media.

Our courses also develop the qualities that define an entrepreneur: creative thinking, problem-solving, innovation, and resilience in the face of challenge. We even teach you about failure. All entrepreneurs go through it, but here at Fordham, you can take risks in a supportive environment where experts and mentors will catch you if you fall.

Faculty members constantly adjust their classes to keep pace with the changing entrepreneurial space and to meet students’ needs. Listening to student input has led to the development of entire courses, such as Executing the Entrepreneurial Vision and Inside Tech Ventures.

New York is truly a land of opportunity when it comes to entrepreneurship, but don’t think of the city as a boundary. Each year, 20 Fordham students take a 10-day trip to Silicon Valley to visit companies like Adobe, Google, Facebook, and Apple. Students also travel nationally through Fordham’s chapter of the Kenneth Cole Foundation’s prestigious Compass Fellows program. Fordham is one of only 17 campuses worldwide chosen to take part in this social-innovation initiative.
