esd program

Students gain knowledge and connections while working with early-stage start-ups and entrepreneurs.

The goal of the Entrepreneurial Scholar of Distinction (ESD) program is to provide select Crummer MBA students with an immersive entrepreneurial experience focused on the earlier stages of entrepreneurial start up, due diligence, finance, and social impact. The ESD program is a hands-on practica within a designated program partner organization for credit hours and supervised by a member of the Crummer entrepreneurship faculty. The scope, duration, and total number of positions available in the program varies by partner organization.

Students interested in the ESD program must apply and participate in a competitive selection process. The ESD designation carries with it significant prestige and recognition for those students who are selected. Partner organizations include DeepWork Capital and Rally, Central Florida’s Social Enterprise Accelerator.
