CENTRAL MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY: A HOME FOR FUTURE ENTREPRENEURS

CMU's entrepreneurship program is an innovative and business-connected learning environment to prepare students for a variety of careers in the ever-changing world of business.

Central Michigan University encourages entrepreneurship and innovation to all its students through different programs. CMU's main entrepreneurship goal is to create a Student-centered Learning experience. We as a college value rigorous, active, lifelong learning.

Moreover, CMU values ongoing engagement with the business community. For example, CMU works with Isabella Bank and Labelle's Real State group to fund entrepreneurship programs.

At CMU we also want to be Broadly Educated. We value a broad educational experience that cultivates integration across the functional areas of business. This is why the University Fellows 2021 cohort is made up of students from various majors.

At central we value Relevant Research. We value intellectual contributions that impact business practices, policy, theory, and pedagogy. For instance, we Placed 1st and 2nd in the Pi Sigma Epsilon National Sales Competition for professional sales students, Maynard Award for best article in the field of marketing awarded by the American Marketing Association, #1 Team in Enactus Regional Championships​, and ranked #24 Logistics program by top supply chain management publishing institutions

At central we also value Diversity and Inclusion. We value collegiality, diversity, and inclusion—where ideas are judged on the strength of their intellectual merit.
