The Department of Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the UMKC Henry W. Bloch School of Management develops, delivers and administers entrepreneurship programs that prepare you to distinguish yourself within an existing organization or pursue your own entrepreneurial dream.

The entrepreneurship emphasis provides a business education focused on both starting new businesses and creating value through innovation in existing businesses. You will develop an entrepreneurial perspective and the ability to achieve objectives regardless of the resources at hand. That capability is a valuable skill anywhere. We welcome students from across the UMKC campus to come and explore entrepreneurship as well as the Kansas City Community.
