Meet With University Advisors Online & Take Virtual Campus Tours In Innovation
College and Career Center
Should innovators go to a traditional 4-year university? A key question to start with is what do you want to do? Let’s say that you want to learn the plumbing trade and then open your own business, or perhaps become a hairstylist with the goal of eventually opening a salon- specialized vocational training may make more sense. If you want to start a high-tech company, it does help to have studied technology and/or engineering. While not all founders on a tech startup team are engineers, most of the really successful companies have been founded by those with technical competency.
No matter what you intend to do as an innovator, there are key business skills that everyone should study, develop and acquire- including accounting, marketing, data analysis, and more. This education can be provided by a traditional 4-year college or university, community college, technical school, community-based program, apprenticeship, or on-the-job training. Read More
