Interview with an Expert
Students don't simply take classes. They acquire the tools and experiences
needed to be successful in an increasingly entrepreneurial world.

Interview with an Expert
Bruce Barringer, Ph.D.

Bruce Barringer, Ph.D.

Department Head, School of Entrepreneurship

Oklahoma State University

Q: What qualities make Oklahoma State University's online program in entrepreneurship outstanding?

A: Our classes are taught by a mix of traditional academics and clinical professors who have business startup experience. That combination provides our students the ideal mix of theory and real-world entrepreneurial experience. Our classes are rigorous yet practical. We also integrate "experiential learning" experiences into all of our classes. As a result, students don't simply take classes. They acquire the tools and experiences needed to be successful in an increasingly entrepreneurial world.

The [current] student body ranges in age from 22 to 62 in this program, and that makes for a very interesting dynamic between younger and older students. At any given time, I have students in 40 out of 50 states and probably half a dozen foreign countries. That brings a range of perspectives and life and professional experience into the classroom like no other project management program of which I am aware.

Q: What support does Oklahoma State University offer their online student body?

A: We offer the same level of support to our online students as our students taking classes on our campus. That involves one-on-one mentoring from our professors, access to our "Student Startup Central," which is the location where students work on business ideas, and access to all of our events, including Pitch & Poster Competitions and Startup Weekends. In some cases, our online students travel to our Stillwater campus to participate in activities.

Q: How does the online program at Oklahoma State University differ from the on-campus program?

A: The classes and professors are the same. The online students don't have the advantage of being present on campus, but our professors are accessible to them and they are able to work in groups and participate in experiential activities through our online platform. Our students consistently give us high marks for the experience they have in our online program.

Degree Overview: Entrepreneurship

From certificates that can be earned over the span of a few months to doctoral programs that take several years to complete, students interested in entrepreneurship education can find a program that suits their career goals. Let's delve further into what students may learn when they opt for online colleges for entrepreneurship.

Online Entrepreneurship Courses

Students can begin their journey into entrepreneurship with an undergraduate certificate, which can prepare students to enter the workforce with a more business-oriented approach. A certificate often requires a handful of courses that take up to a year or so to complete. Some common courses in the certificate program include:

  • Entrepreneurial Management
  • Venture Creation
  • Entrepreneurial Finance
  • Becoming a Manager

In many cases, the credits earned in a certificate program can be applied toward earning an associate degree in entrepreneurship, business or another similar degree path. An associate degree program prepares students to enter the workforce immediately; alternatively, the associate degree credits can serve as a stepping stone to the bachelor's degree. Associate students are likely to take courses such as:

  • Computer Applications
  • Business Finance
  • Small Business Management
  • Entrepreneurial Marketing and Professional Selling

Those who choose to pursue online bachelor's degree programs in entrepreneurship can expect to attend up to four years of courses, though some accelerated programs might allow for completion on a shorter schedule. Students can expect courses across such subjects as accounting, economics, business, management and even philosophy. Here's a sampling:

  • Principles of Accounting
  • Small Business Ventures
  • Principles of Microeconomics
  • Management for Organizations

In graduate studies, namely master's and doctoral programs, students immerse themselves in a highly specialized degree program that allows them to hone in on their particular interests in the entrepreneurial world. In addition to more in-depth courses on topics in business law, technology and strategy, many schools require students to put their learning into action by creating their small business plan and working toward the goal of creating it.

Career-Related Skills to Develop

Those who earn online entrepreneurship degrees will usually walk away from the experience with a wealth of new knowledge and honed skills.

  • Systems evaluation: The ability to evaluate one's business and business models to ascertain how the business is performing and where it is struggling is an obvious necessity for any entrepreneur. Several classes throughout any level of entrepreneurship program are likely to address this concept, due to its importance, and budding entrepreneurs would be well served to pay extra attention to mastering it.
  • Complex problem solving: Oftentimes it's easy to notice that there's a problem with your company; the tricky part is coming up with a solution in time to prevent your company from going under. The ability to identify a problem, evaluate your options and then implement a solution is invaluable in the cutthroat world of business and should be a key skill for any entrepreneur to study.
  • Management of personnel resources: Unless you're the sole employee in your company, the ability to convey your vision to your peers and motivate them to give their best work to your venture is invaluable. Courses in leadership can be the perfect way to perfect your skills in this area.
  • Persuasion: Any new business needs seed capital and investors. Learning the art of persuasion and self-marketing is the key to garnering the support you require to get your dream off the ground.

Entrepreneurship Career Outlook

Although you might think that entrepreneurship studies are best suited for those who wish to start their own businesses, the skills learned are applicable to many types of careers. With problem solving, management, and creative thinking at the heart of entrepreneurship, take a look at some of the professions that end up being a good fit for entrepreneurship graduates.

Bachelor's degree

These company leaders are responsible for creating and executing the high-level vision of specific areas of their organizations. Sometimes called the "C-suite," there are various "chief" or upper level executive roles in most companies, including Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Chief Information Officer (CIO) and others. Although you can "climb the corporate ladder" to attain these positions, most people in these roles hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree, but more commonly, an MBA or other related master's degree. Since entrepreneurial skills are very useful for tackling business challenges and getting staff to rally around the core mission of the company, taking an executive path is a natural fit.

Chief Sustainability Officers

A somewhat new role, these professionals are responsible for ensuring that organizations follow through on their commitments to environmental responsibility. From reducing the carbon footprint, to recycling efforts, to energy efficient operations, sustainability is an important part of the modern business world. A bachelor's degree in a business field like entrepreneurship with some coursework in sustainability and environmental science is a good pathway into this up-and-coming career.

Someone needs to oversee the day-to-day operations of a company to ensure that processes are flowing smoothly, and that each department has the resources it needs to be highly productive while working within set operating costs. That's where general managers come in. To get to management levels, a few years of work experience is almost always required, but many companies expect applicants to hold a bachelor's or master's degree in a relevant field like entrepreneurial studies or business administration as well.

Legislators

These are the people who write and help pass new laws. In many cases, legislators are elected or appointed politicians who have previous experience and well-developed entrepreneurial skills from the private sector. Because building close ties in a community is often necessary to break into this career track, small business owners with a solid history of successful entrepreneurship and community involvement are often ideal candidates. Typically, most legislators have at least a bachelor's degree, with some coursework in political science, law and/or business.
