  • Intrapreneur  

    The leading state university for entrepreneurship in Massachusetts

    The Center for Entrepreneurship is dedicated to encouraging and supporting students and alumni to be entrepreneurial in the broadest sense possible—from starting a business with a brand-new idea, to bringing innovation to a family’s business, to being an “intrapreneur” who nurtures change and growth within a large organization.
