Innovation isn’t just developing disruptive ways of doing things or creating cool apps — it’s a mindset. Increasingly, companies seek employees who can move even the most traditional businesses forward. Terry graduates should be equipped to innovate.

As the home of the Entrepreneurship Program (ENTR), Terry is at the heart of innovation at UGA. By creating an environment where students can develop, experiment with and receive feedback on new ideas, the college helped fuel a campus-wide innovation boom.

Energized by ENTR’s success, we are increasing funding for student startups and consulting projects, engaging purposefully in the university’s Innovation District, awarding research grants to faculty engaged in areas of innovation, and expanding interdisciplinary efforts across Terry and in strategic partnership with other colleges.
