The Center for Entrepreneurship fosters and develops the skills critical to successful entrepreneurial leadership—innovating, validating, planning, funding, and launching new ventures. The center is housed under the Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business and offers a variety of entrepreneurial programs, including a Certificate in Entrepreneurship for MBA students.

The center capitalizes on Westminster's unique environment for learning, bridging the gap between formal education and real-world experience. Students learn in many different ways—through coursework, workshops, field experiences, competitions, and personal mentoring.
