Entrepreneurial Initiative Center

Ave Maria University is please to announce the creation of its Entrepreneurship Initiative.  This initiative assists students of all majors in living their faith as they create value and serve others.  Student members benefit from acquiring life skills in the “science of association,” which includes project-creation, problem-solving, and collective action, all of which are essential to leadership, prosperity, a life of service, and good citizenship.
