Business, Finance & Entrepreneurship

“Being confident and believing in your own self-worth is necessary to achieving your potential.”—Sheryl Sandberg (Technology Executive)


This community is intended to connect Drew students and alums who share a passion for understanding the economy and the disciplines of economics and business across industries. By learning to think critically, analytically, and empirically about the economy, its challenges and opportunities, and its connections to the rest of society, members of the Business, Finance & Entrepreneurship community will have access to a myriad of pathways in varied careers. By discovering how nonprofit organizations apply business techniques to address the world’s most serious problems through entrepreneurship, our students and alums are able to connect the principles of business and finance to serve the public good.
