Curriculum

The Field Center seeks to help people live more meaningful lives by teaching them how to see and take advantage of opportunities where others do not. To this end, Field Center Faculty have developed a suite of curricular programs designed to facilitate their innate creativity, empathy, innovativeness, insight, and resourcefulness as well as the courage to act upon their ideas.

BBA Major and Minor in Entrepreneurship

Launching Fall 2020

Entrepreneurship refers to the ability to see and the willingness to pursue opportunity in the face of uncertainty. Thus, the major and minor in Entrepreneurship have been redesigned to help students learn how to respond to challenges – whether in the context of a new venture, established company, non-profit organization, or government agency – by creating and implementing novel, value-creating solutions to them. By developing an entrepreneurial mindset,” students can become not only better business owner-managers, but better scientists, analysts, writers, programmers, artists, public servants, managers, etc. as well.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • 9-credit minor open to all Baruch students
  • All 10 elective courses open to all Baruch students
  • Major reduced to 21-credits
  • 3 elective credits for major can come from outside entrepreneurship
  • All courses have heavy focus on experiential learning
  • All courses are zero-textbook cost

Minor in Social Innovation​

Launching Fall 2020

Social innovations are new ideas that solve pressing, unmet social and/or environmental needs. Thus, the minor in social innovation is designed to expose students to the nature and causes of today’s social and environmental problems and challenge them to develop a “theory of change” in response to them, thereby generating beneficial outcomes for all affected stakeholders.Because the novelty of social innovations is dependent upon arbitraging ideas and knowledge from across sectoral and disciplinary boundaries, this program requires that students take one course from each of Baruch’s three colleges.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • 9-credit minor open to all Baruch students
  • Capstone is zero-textbook cost
  • Only interdisciplinary minor at Baruch requiring coursework from all three schools
