Entrepreneurship at USC: An Exciting 21st Century Opportunity

A survey of college students funded by LegalZoom.com revealed these statistics:

  • 36 percent of college students are “sidepreneurs,” i.e., they have started businesses in addition to attending school.
  • 69 percent of students would like to work for an entrepreneur.
  • 89 percent believe entrepreneurship education is important.

To remain a global leader in business education and a catalyst for economic development, the Faber Center at USC is helping to develop USC's entrepreneurship program as we encourage and prepare our students to take their entrepreneurial skills into the new global economy.
