Pursuing a business degree really is the cool thing to do. Nearly 20%* of all college students are studying business. The growth of the business major has been on a steady rise for the past 15 years*, making it one of the most popular and competitive majors out there.

Business students are the second highest most sought after students, after engineering. Whether you want to live around the world or be a local entrepreneur, there’s a place for you and your new found skill set. The roads connecting from a business degree can take you anywhere.*NCES Survey, http://nces.ed.gov/programs/digest/d13/tables/dt13_318.50.asp
The University of Nebraska’s College of Business Administration was founded on two guiding principles: education and ethics. And for the last hundred years, the school has used these principles to create strong business leaders. For example, the school’s Center for Entrepreneurship gives business students the opportunity to learn valuable lessons inside and outside of the classroom. Academically, the Center offers coursework for graduate and undergraduate students that includes topics such as Managing Rapid Growth and Change in Organizations, Business Plan Development and Decision Making, and Talent Acquisition and Staffing. Outside of the classroom, students can take advantage of the Center’s mentorship program, which pairs them with a local entrepreneur that has similar interests. The Center also hosts business plan competitions that award a total of around $75,000 in cash prizes. During the contests, students present three-minute elevator pitches to sell their business ideas to the judges. One competition, 3-2-1 Quickpitch, is open to students from high schools, and two- and four-year colleges. The Center’s second competition (EntrepreneuringDays@UNL), exclusively for students at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, takes place during a celebration of entrepreneurial learning at the school. During the three-day event, UNL hosts a dinner and the Nebraska Distinguished Entrepreneur Awards ceremony. It’s time to turn your great idea into a business!
