Our programs teach students to recognize problems as opportunities and create valuable solutions. No matter their area of study, students learn to see the world through the lens of entrepreneurship. 

Entrepreneurship at Lehigh University is bigger than just the Baker Institute. While we serve as a hub for many programs, there are a number of others beyond Baker that teach entrepreneurship and help students realize their dreams.

Entrepreneurship Courses/Minor

Whether you aim to be an entrepreneur or simply to become more innovative within existing companies or non-profit enterprises, students in any major can supplement that major with a entrepreneurial mindset that will increase your ability to identify opportunities for innovation, to challenge the status quo in any field and to implement sustainable change. Not all courses offered every semester.

Master's of Engineering in Technical Entreprenuership

Lehigh's one-year, 30-credit, full-time professional Master's program (M.Eng.) in technical entrepreneurship helps students develop an entrepreneurial mindset through a process we call "Learn by Doing, Learn by Making and Learn by Launching." Entrepreneurial-minded students from any undergraduate major are encouraged to apply.
