Student experiences

"I highly recommend the Social Entrepreneurship program for anyone interested in not only changing the world through entrepreneurship, but being the change they want to see by being in a classroom that will challenge them to grow and question their surroundings."
"I really valued the class discussions when everyone would contribute to the conversation and it became like one, big global discussion. I loved all of the perspectives and I think Dr. Wessels did an amazing job at creating an environment where people felt comfortable speaking up."
