Miller School of Entrepreneurship

The College of Business established the first School of Entrepreneurship in the region in 2015, made possible by a generous commitment of $5 million by a Raleigh area entrepreneur, J. Fielding Miller, and his wife, Kim Grice Miller (pictured below).

The Miller School of Entrepreneurship serves as a regional hub for preparing students to take an entrepreneurial mindset into their communities. The school links with partners throughout the university and region to bring entrepreneurship education and co-curricular student engagement to enable regional transformation.

The emerging high-technology and service industries have created a demand for entrepreneurs who can provide dynamic leadership in creating new enterprises. Equally important is the need for individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit to enter older, more mature industries. If you intend to enter a family business, work in the small business sector, start your own business, or buy an existing business, you should consider a concentration in entrepreneurship and small business management.
