KSU 'uniquely positioned' to produce innovative entrepreneurs

KENNESAW, Ga. (Aug 17, 2016) — Excerpt of Article: A new degree program will position Kennesaw State University to be a leader in producing innovative and successful entrepreneurs, Chris Hanks said Wednesday on WABE's "Closer Look" program.

"No student will enter this degree program and leave it the same," said Hanks, the executive director of the Robin and Doug Shore Entrepreneurship Center at KSU. "They will be transformed, and they will leave it a better version of themselves."

The Coles College of Business will begin the Bachelor of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship in fall 2017. It is the first entrepreneurship B.B.A. program in Georgia.

"It came about from the desire for the institution to lead entrepreneurship in the Southeast," Hanks said. "By having the only major (in Georgia), we become the destination point for anybody who is serious about entrepreneurship."
