Entrepreneurship +2 (BS)

School of Professional Studies and Management

Entrepreneurship is a valuable skill set for everyone, not just business majors. The world of business is changing, owning a service shop or a business today is a totally different ball game than it was 25 years ago. For Vermont Tech students, the combination of an applied technical skill like Engineering or Auto Tech and an entrepreneurial knowledge-base will be a big asset in today’s economy. Students who complete the bachelor’s degree will acquire the skills to manage, optimize, and lead their growing businesses.

This degree completion program can be added onto any two-year degree from Vermont Tech and awards a bachelor of science upon completion.

The +2 Entrepreneurship program is a degree-completion program. Students must have at least 50 transferrable credits from an accredited institution. These credits should include 20 credits consistent with the general education requirements for an associate degree. Any deficiencies will require additional coursework.

Student outcomes correlate with the four-year bachelor’s degree.

The student, in conjunction with the Department Chair, develops a sequence of courses to best meet their background and needs that still satisfies the degree requirements. A typical curriculum is shown here.

 

  • Scholarships: While there are no program-specific scholarships available at this time, additional scholarships are available.
