The IEL’s programs focus in the following five areas:
- Undergraduate Advanced Entrepreneurship Certificate, a 12-unit of undergraduate credit certificate that includes classes and advising to prepare students to deal with the practical realities of building and running a business.
- MBA Specialization in Entrepreneurial Leadership which empowers students to convert ideas from the classroom into socially responsive, sustainable businesses.
- Resident Entrepreneur Program, which provides individuals space in the Institute’s Business Accelerator along with mentoring and support services.
- Corporate Training.
- Seminars and Special Conferences.
Mentorship is integral to the IEL program. Students have the opportunity to work with and learn from successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, and top level executives who have grown and run billion dollar companies. They also enjoy access to resources and capital and a wide array of networking opportunities.
