The Entrepreneurship Fellows Program (EFP) is designed with the entrepreneurial student in mind.

Through a blend of coursework and co-curricular activities, the EFP helps students to:

  • Understand their personal entrepreneurial aptitude
  • Learn lessons from entrepreneurial mentors and faculty
  • Bond with their entrepreneurial peers and experienced mentors
  • ​Pursue an entrepreneurial career in new or existing organizations


Undergraduate students at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business can earn the Entrepreneurship Fellowship by doing the following:

  1. Complete the course STRT 280: Foundations of Entrepreneurship (3 cr.)
  2. ​Complete the course STRT 295: Launching the Venture (3 cr.)
  3. Complete the course MGMT 208: Entrepreneurial Practicum, which consists of at least 120 hours of supervised practical work (3 cr.)
  4. Compete in the Hoya Challenge business pitch competition
    *In addition, business students are required to complete ACCT 101, while non-business students are required to complete ACCT 001.

Note: There is some flexibility in scheduling these courses to allow students who spend a semester abroad to complete the fellowship.
