The John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise provides value-added programming for Entrepreneurship students. The programming promotes a relational atmosphere that invites networking and mentorship in an educational setting. Programming also acts as a liaison and provides students with connections with representatives within the local, small-business community.
Baugh Center programming presents students with opportunities for involvement through the Oso Launch Program, the 1846 Business Incubator, industry-specific internships as well as invitations to compete in various business plan and pitch competitions.
It is the intent of the Baugh Center staff to administer programming that immerses students into an environment that is rich in both classroom knowledge and real-world experiences. The culture not only promotes personal and professional development, but also pushes for forward and innovative thinking. Baugh Center staff embolden outside-the-box thinking regardless of the risk for failure, empowering students to pursue passions and dreams.
At the Baugh Center, students are valued.
