Entrepreneurship (+2 BS)

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 transferable credits from an accredited institution. All coursework from an accredited institution not used to meet core requirements may be used towards the 120-credit minimum provided that it doesn’t duplicate other coursework.

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

Minimum degree requirements are listed here. A typical curriculum is shown below.
