In the Entrepreneurship major, students develop their entrepreneurial mindset in a way that fits their individual interests and ambitions. They learn the knowledge and skills needed to create a new business, to start a new social enterprise, launch a new venture in a corporate setting, and/or refresh an existing enterprise.
The Entrepreneurship Club serves as a resource for Seton Hall students interested in entrepreneurship. The Club hosts guest speakers, co-sponsors entrepreneurship events, and meets on a regular basis. The Entrepreneurship Club supports major entrepreneurship events on campus, including the Pirates Pitch Startup Contest, Pirates Pitch for High School Students competition, entrepreneurship boot camps and entrepreneurship workshops.
Pirates Pitch is the annual Seton Hall University Business Startup Competition. Sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the competition encourages student teams to dream up an idea for a business or, if a student already has started a business, an idea to expand that fledgling business. The student teams then pitch that idea to a panel of judges comprised of successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. Prizes include both cash and free business services. Team members must be undergraduate or graduate matriculated students who are enrolled full-time or part-time at Seton Hall University.
