“Cross-Fertilization” hits the Adams Center

Students from all majors will be given the opportunity to act as independent entities in the business world and participate in real-life work experiences through a new Entrepreneurship Club and Executive Leadership Program offered by The Adams Center for Entrepreneurship at the Barry Kaye College of Business.

With new interdisciplinary classes, programs and clubs, the center hopes to get students from many backgrounds and with different interests involved with entrepreneurship. That way, no matter what field a student goes into, he or she will be prepared to handle every aspect.

"When publishing a magazine, the student will need to know how to actually manipulate the material in the magazine, as well as the business behind the start up of the magazine itself," said Kimberly Gramm, the center director. "It's cross-fertilization."

The Entrepreneurship Club will provide guidance to students through the Center’s leading professionals and their experiences. All students will be given the opportunity to join the club and gain important lessons in business and entrepreneurship from actual business owners as they take on projects and perform tasks as if they were actually running their own business, Gramm said.

The Executive Leadership Program will enable students to work directly with business mentors, observe, ask questions and get advice while learning in a business setting. It will be offered for both undergraduate and graduate students from all majors.

"The program will bring students and faculty down the path to success" using resources from within the university, Gramm said. "It’s all about experience."

Students interested in the club should contact Matt Hughes at cmatthughes@gmail.com. Students interested in the leadership program can submit their information at www.fauadamscenter.org.
