Entrepreneurship Diploma

The Entrepreneurship Diploma with Founding Partner Bridges to Wealth at The Wharton School.

  • Students pitching start up ideas.
  • Entrepreneurship Class

Recognizing the need for a cutting edge, innovative, and rigorous education that prepares students with the critical thinking, professional, and leadership skills to create and perform in the jobs of tomorrow and navigate the business trends of an ever-changing, global economy, The Village School is proud to launch the Entrepreneurship Diploma with Founding Partner Bridges to Wealth at The Wharton School.

Incoming freshman students have the opportunity to enroll in the Entrepreneurship Diploma, which focuses on teaching finance, leadership development, negotiations, decision-making, marketing, strategy, private equity and venture capital, money management, and more. Within the Diploma, students can specialize in either the Engineering or Social Enterprise track. Both tracks are taught by industry-leading professionals and entrepreneurs, and expose students to the fundamentals of entrepreneurship. Specifically: 

  • The Engineering Track focuses on “product-driven entrepreneurship,” and teaches how to apply entrepreneurship concepts to quantitative data analysis, engineering, and STEAM.
  • The Social Enterprise Track focuses on “process-driven entrepreneurship,” and participants learn how to create, implement, and evaluate processes that drive social entrepreneurship. 

Both tracks culminate in a Capstone experience in which students work with a non-profit or business to identify a community or industry need. With mentorship from entrepreneurs and professors, the students are required to research, create, execute, and evaluate a real-life solution that addresses that need. These real world and “beyond-the-classroom” learning experiences are student-centered and problem-based, enable students to develop business literacy and interpersonal skills, and are an integral part of the Entrepreneurship Diploma.
