The Challenge


The Entrepreneurship Spotlight Challenge (ESC) highlights Entrepreneurship Centers or Entrepreneurial-specific programs at AACSB-accredited schools demonstrating leadership in creating (and incubating) cutting-edge business innovations through enriched student learning and experiential education.

The ESC strives to highlight the best examples of entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity, while showcasing how business schools engage with business practice to provide students an opportunity to gain core skills required to be successful in business. It will feature the innovative, creative, and dynamic thinking of the next generation of business leaders, and promote the impact entrepreneurship centers are having on business and society.
