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.
The Miller School of Entrepreneurship serves as a regional hub for preparing students to take an entrepreneurial mindset and skillset into their communities.
In addition to its unique entrepreneurship curriculum, the School links with key strategic partners to offer co-curricular programs that help serve as a catalyst for 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.
