The Entrepreneurship Fellows Program (EFP) is designed with the entrepreneurial student in mind.
Through a blend of coursework and co-curricular activities, the EFP helps students to:
- Understand their personal entrepreneurial aptitude
- Learn lessons from entrepreneurial mentors and faculty
- Bond with their entrepreneurial peers and experienced mentors
- Pursue an entrepreneurial career in new or existing organizations
Undergraduate students at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business can earn the Entrepreneurship Fellowship by doing the following:
- Complete course STRT 280: Foundations of Entrepreneurship (3 credits)
- Complete course STRT 295: Launching the Venture (3 credits)
- Complete course MGMT 208: Entrepreneurial Practicum, which consists of at least 120 hours of supervised practical work (3 credits)
- Compete in the Hoya Challenge business pitch competition
- Business students are required to complete ACCT 101, while non-business students are required to complete ACCT 001.
Note: Business minors from the College are required to take ACCT 101 instead of ACCT 001.
There is some flexibility in scheduling these courses to allow students who spend a semester abroad to complete the fellowship.
