The major theme of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management is entrepreneurial management. Entrepreneurial management is defined as the ability to envision and create new business ventures whether in a startup situation or within a mature organization; the ability to identify new opportunities; and the ability to grow and renew existing businesses (including nonprofit organizations) in a healthy, productive manner. Entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial managers must deal with numerous challenges and opportunities including managing proficiently in rapidly growing global markets. These exciting challenges require new ways of thinking, creating, and managing. They also require personal courage and risk-taking.

The Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises Program (EEE) is designed to link educational excellence and entrepreneurial ingenuity. Topics covered in the curriculum include the entrepreneurial mind, opportunity identification and verification, financing, venture planning, managing family and closely held enterprises, venture capital, startup challenges, legal issues facing entrepreneurs, creating an entrepreneurial culture, and building highly proficient entrepreneurial teams. Students frequently benefit from the expertise of local and national leaders in the field.

Graduates of the EEE program are particularly well-suited for the growing opportunities found in both small and large organizations requiring entrepreneurial skills. A primary educational mission of the EEE program is to help students recognize and capitalize on their own entrepreneurial potential.
