Aligned with the School of Pharmacy’s mission to Care for the Community, students learn to apply sound business principles to address the health care needs of a diverse and dynamic population, resulting in improved health. The IE program challenges students to develop innovative solutions to various challenges facing the pharmacy profession today. In addition, the IE program offers a nationally-known certificate through the Kauffman FastTrac, a part of the Kauffman Foundation, whose mission is to foster economic independence through education and entrepreneurship. The FastTrac® Planning the Entrepreneurial Venture™ offers an interactive learning approach, and is well-suited for students interested in learning the basics of entrepreneurship. Programs are periodically held throughout the year to provide opportunities for students to network with and learn from successful entrepreneurs in a variety of fields.
