At the beginning of the fiscal year, North Carolina State University (NC State) changed the name of the organization responsible for its entrepreneurial activities. NC State Entrepreneurship, the old organization, became NC State Innovation and Entrepreneurship to align with the university’s strategic plan which is title “Wolfpack 2030: Powering the Extraordinary.”
As part of this shift, two other announcements were made. First, Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences will become a part of NC State Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Second, a Professor in the Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship within the Poole College of Management, has been appointed Executive Director of NC State Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Goodnight Distinguished Professor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
NC State Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a unit of the Office of University Interdisciplinary Programs, which provides leadership, direction and oversight for the programmatic planning and implementation of university-wide interdisciplinary programs and initiatives. NC State is ranked #1 in the Southeast and #15 in the nation for both undergraduate and graduate entrepreneurship programs by The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine for 2022.
