High School Students Participate in University’s Entrepreneurship Day

Jan 21, 2015

More than 60 area high school students from the region participated in The University of Scranton’s Entrepreneurship Day held on campus recently. Students who attended explored topics related to entrepreneurship and participated in activities that helped them explore creativity and innovation at a daylong workshop.

The program was offered by the University’s Kania School of Management Entrepreneurship Program, the Office of Community Relations and the Small Business Development Center, in partnership with Skills in Scranton, which is an affiliate of the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce.

The University began to offer a new major in entrepreneurship in the fall 2014 semester.
