Elizabethtown College


Entrepreneurship and Family Business Area of Study

While large corporations may seem to be the powerhouses of America, family-run and small businesses make up a significant portion of the economy.

Approximately 90 percent of North American companies are family-run. In addition, small businesses make up 99.7% of the U.S. economy. They create more than 64% of new private sector jobs. Small businesses are innovation leaders, having produced 16 times more patents per employee than large firms! Elizabethtown College is one of the few colleges in the nation that blends entrepreneurship and family business management into one unique program.

When you complete our entrepreneurship and small business program in Pennsylvania, you’ll have the foundational business skills you need to pursue your chosen career.
