Monmouth University Entrepreneurship Course Selected as Finalist for National Competition

Monmouth University Leon Hess Business School’s entrepreneurship course, taught by Professor John Buzza, was selected as a finalist in a national competition sponsored by the United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) in January. USASBE chose Monmouth University, the University of Texas and Northern Illinois University as finalists for its Special Recognition in Entrepreneurship Award. Over 85 universities participated in the competition.

Students in Monmouth’s entrepreneurship course partner with small businesses in the surrounding community through the University’s Center for Entrepreneurship.

“I am very proud of our students and their accomplishments. Thanks to their dedication, the Monmouth University Center for Entrepreneurship has earned a national reputation for excellence,” said Buzza. “The support from our Leon Hess Business School along with our unique approach to entrepreneurship education will continue to make our program one of the finest in the country.”

The mission of the Monmouth University Center for Entrepreneurship at the Leon Hess Business School is to nurture entrepreneurial thinking through a community of business partners committed to achieving social and economic progress. Entrepreneurship students are able to conduct business practices and launch new businesses from the safety of the classroom in real world situations. Projects include pasta sauce, dog treats, and perfumes that are still on the market today.
