The Fox School of Business and Management’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute (IEI) proactively promotes entrepreneurial spirit throughout all 17 schools and colleges of Temple University.
Because entrepreneurship is such a multi-disciplinary, opportunistic and dynamic phenomenon, the IEI emphasizes integrated, applied, hands-on learning, bringing together students, entrepreneurs, mentors, alumni, faculty, and business advisors from diverse backgrounds to work on real-time projects. As the largest research university in this region, IEI’s future emphasis will be in science and technology.
