New Programs | September 2020

Schools launch new courses and programs in entrepreneurship, sales management, and sustainable energy.

The New York University Stern School of Business has launched a four-year bachelor’s degree in business, technology, and entrepreneurship (BTE). The STEM-certified program will enroll its inaugural class of 30 to 50 undergraduate business students in August 2021. BTE students will take immersive courses in technology and entrepreneurship and will have opportunities to take required and elective courses from schools across NYU, including the schools of engineering and mathematical sciences. In their capstone course, students will develop their own ventures or work with early-stage startups.

The Jack Welch College of Business & Technology (WCBT) at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, has added sales management as a new minor. The program targets not only business students seeking careers in sales, but also those outside of business whose careers might have a sales component. Students who enroll in the new minor will learn the importance of focusing on customers by solving their problems, fulfilling their needs, and helping them better their lives.

This fall, Tulane University’s A.B. Freeman School of Business in New Orleans, Louisiana, is launching a specialization in renewable and sustainable energy within its master of management in energy (MME) program. The specialization will help students gain the knowledge and skills to bring renewable energy projects from concept to completion. In addition to the MME program’s core curriculum in energy, the specialization requires nine credit hours of electives in renewable and sustainable content. The master of management in energy is a STEM-designated program.
