<!-- From Markham Campus website. Please modify for futurestudents.yorku.ca -->

Markham Campus will be home to the Entrepreneurship and Innovation stream, a new and exciting option within York University’s Bachelor of Commerce programming. This stream will equip business students with the knowledge, competencies and skills needed to develop, execute, advise on, or otherwise engage in innovation projects and entrepreneurial activities. The program builds on York’s well-subscribed set of existing business courses to provide adequate breadth and depth of knowledge, but pedagogical innovation through experiential education, e-learning and other high-impact practices will be a hallmark of the program designed to meet evolving student needs. Students will have the opportunity to apply their classroom learning as they engage with the entrepreneurial ecosystem and participate in activities such as hackathons, pitch competitions, new product development, social enterprise, and start-ups. Developing an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset will allow students to embrace future opportunities regardless of their ultimate career path.

Minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Students in other programs at York will have the opportunity to pair their arts, science, engineering, or other programs with a minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. This minor will expose students to the theories and practices of innovation management and entrepreneurship with an emphasis on exploring opportunities in their core disciplines. The aim of the program is to contribute to the development of innovation- enabled and entrepreneurial-minded graduates.
