Pacific Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summit

According to Investopedia.com, “entrepreneurs are frequently thought of as national assets to be cultivated, motivated and remunerated to the greatest possible extent.”

The 2016 BNP Paribus Global Entrepreneur Report found that of the millennials and boomers who start businesses, millennials create their first businesses at a younger age, create more businesses over time, and generate a larger headcount of employees in their primary businesses. Students pursing business degrees are reflective of this trend with a majority indicating that they want to launch their own companies at some point early in their career. Furthermore, more than one-third of business majors in the Eberhardt School are first-generation students seeking opportunity.

The Eberhardt School of Business has collaborated with the School of Engineering and Computer Science to launch the Pacific Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summit, which allows students to participate in a pitch competition in front of executives, community members and potential investors.

Undergraduate Internship Support Program

An internship experience is one of the primary experiential learning opportunities for undergraduate students in the Eberhardt School. Some internships are paid, while others are unpaid and may require significant travel and living costs. There is a need to standardize the internship experience with support for students who secure unpaid internships in Bay Area locations. An undergraduate internship- support program will engage employer partners and be an additional value added to any of our degree programs.
