The Entrepreneurship Lab offers students a unique space and environment to collaborate, and aims to foster an entrepreneurial mindset that results in innovation, initiative, and commitment. The significance of entrepreneurial studies is evidenced in the nationally accredited core curricula offered by the Lubin School and its curricular and co-curricular programs.
