Faculty who teach classes in Entrepreneurship have specialized training for those who want to establish their own business. Each faculty member has started his/her own small business and brings practical experience to the classroom. With four student-run businesses on campus (McConn Coffee Company, IWU Mart, and the two IWU.BIZ stores), students have the opportunity to put in practice what they are learning in class with professors who understand the nuances of owning your own business.
