The Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises (EEE) program is a flagship program at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. Consistently ranked as one of the top entrepreneurship programs in the nation in terms of research, teaching, and outreach, EEE helps undergraduate, masters and Ph.D. students discover their innate entrepreneurial potential, giving them a set of tools and perspective to capitalize on that potential and help launch their careers. The underlying teaching philosophy of the EEE program is experiential learning. The entire program is dedicated to providing hands-on opportunities for students to live entrepreneurship, whether through starting their own companies, working with local startups or by engaging in consulting projects with established businesses or not-for-profits.

Whitman’s entrepreneurship program is designed to examine and enhance the connection between educational excellence and entrepreneurship ingenuity, offering specialized tracks and coursework in new venture creation, corporate entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship and family business. The EEE faculty team of renowned scholars published nearly 40 books and articles in 2014-15, are editors at four leading international journals, and hold 21 editorial board positions at top journals.
