The Iowa Board of Regents approved a new undergraduate major in entrepreneurship at the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business during its Feb. 28 meeting. The major will be offered starting in the fall 2024 semester. The program will be interdisciplinary and offer tracks in entrepreneurial finance, technology entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial leadership and new ventures. “The University of Iowa and the Tippie College of Business are at the forefront of innovation in many fields, and this new major will help to evaluate and commercialize many of those discoveries,” Amy Kristof-Brown, dean of the Tippie College of Business, said in a prepared statement. Charles Keene, associate dean for undergraduate programs and professor of instruction in marketing, who helped develop the new major, describes it as “an MBA for undergraduates.” The program was also developed in consultation with members of the Iowa John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center Advisory Council and other alumni entrepreneurs, according to the announcement.
