Visiting our campus is one of the best ways to get a feel for Goshen — from classes and dorms to the dining hall menu — and decide if it’s a good fit for you. We are a friendly community where people are happy to answer your questions and show you around.
Your curiosity runs rampant. When you set a goal, you stop at nothing to accomplish it. If you see no path front of you, you create one. If this describes you, an entrepreneurship minor may be right for you!
The entrepreneurship program encourages students to test their ideas and pursue opportunities, whether that is growing an existing business, pursuing a creative project, or exploring a new business idea. Goshen College has equipped hundreds of graduates to invent their own work, achieve unique goals and start their own businesses and non-profit organizations. Every year, we offer qualifying students an entrepreneurship grant that launches ideas into businesses. Whether you want to start a business in art, computer science, agriculture or another field, the entrepreneurship grant gives you the resources to make your “big picture” dreams come to life.
In addition, you’ll take classes in accounting and management and gain practical experience by completing a semester-long internship at a local, regional or national company. Students have worked in cities as close as Elkhart and as far away as Spain! You can also take Java Junction Management, a course that gives you the reigns to manage and run the campus coffee shop. The entrepreneurship minor will take your ingenuity to the next level as you gain the experience and knowledge you’ll need to succeed in the competitive business world.
