About Business, Management, and Entrepreneurship
Learn to create and manage innovative for-profit and non-profit social and sustainable enterprises designed to address social and environmental change. Develop leadership skills. Start your own business. Gain a practical foundation in accounting, finance, marketing, and other disciplines needed to succeed in business and the larger world. Appreciate the stories and characteristics of successful social and sustainability entrepreneurs from around the globe and in your neighborhood.
Studying business and entrepreneurship at Evergreen gives you the tools to understand the relationship between business, the environment, and society. Programs cultivate a holistic understanding of the business world, considering social and environmental performance—along with financial returns—to measure impact. You'll study a variety of business forms and determine which might work best for you and your goals.
In addition to learning the fundamentals of accounting, finance, marketing, economics, and statistics, you'll learn to interpret the internal and external flow of events impacting an organization. You will develop skills in critical reasoning, communication, research, and strategic planning—skills that characterize the far-thinking and effective organizational leader, manager, and team player.
Join us in an education that doesn’t just change your life — it gives you the tools to change the world.
Student Entrepreneurship on Campus
Evergreen offers students plenty of opportunities to gain practical, hands-on experience in business.
Students run several enterprises on campus, including working closely with the Organic Farm to run a seasonal Market Stand.
The Greener Bookstore provides student employment and career training. KAOS, Evergreen’s licensed radio station, depends on volunteers to operate, and the college’s newspaper, the Cooper Point Journal is staffed entirely by students (on both the editorial and business sides).
Student Activities gives students the awesome ability to start their own clubs. In the past, students have established business-oriented clubs such as the Center for Sustainable Entrepreneurship, which helped students learn about pursuing business careers.
Students can also find jobs and internships on campus through many of our Centers and Institutes
