Students pursuing the Enterprise emphasis are usually interested in the business-side of running a nonprofit organization and want the tangible skills necessary to do so as a career. Others are excited by the promise of social entrepreneurship and may choose an Enterprise emphasis while working toward a certificate in social entrepreneurship through the NIU College of Business.
