Entrepreneurial and Small Business Schools

Every successful entrepreneur starts with a bright idea. Two college students invented Google. Mrs. Fields baked her first cookies at home. If you've always wanted to be your own boss, business training can help you become a successful entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship


Classes and courses in running a business could eventually lead to a certificate or diploma, or even a bachelor's or master's degree--but most importantly, they can help you avoid common business pitfalls. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), "Most new businesses fail because their owners do not look far enough beyond their dreams." Look beyond your dream: take advantage of courses and degrees available at a vocational school, community college, or university near you. You don't necessarily need a master's degree to be a successful entrepreneur, but the classes leading to that degree may be invaluable.

Entrepreneurs Have More Degrees than Non-entrepreneurs

The BLS states that most small-business owners and top executives tend to have a bachelor's or master's degree. Education varies for each industry, but the BLS suggests that any type of higher education can give an entrepreneur the business and leadership skills they need to succeed. If you're ready to find the school that's right for you, browse the listings below for more information.
