Meredith CollegeMeredith College, the liberal arts educational institution for women in Raleigh, North Carolina, has announced that it is added new programs in entrepreneurship on both the undergraduate and graduate level. The School of Business will offer an interdisciplinary minor in entrepreneurship for women undergraduate students. Students in the co-educational MBA program at the college also will be able to concentrate in entrepreneurship.

Kristie Ogilvie, dean of the School of Business at Meredith College, said that “over the past 10 years, no academic area of study or discipline has grown more rapidly in business schools than entrepreneurship while academic research related to entrepreneurship has increased in both quantity and rigor, with more than 40 dedicated and reputable journals in the field.”

Dean Ogilvie added that “while most entrepreneurial programs tend to focus on the exciting ‘unicorn’ startups that have high growth potential, Meredith College provides a great environment for the pragmatic and practical every day entrepreneur.”

Dr. Ogilvie is a graduate of Sacramento State University in California. She earned an MBA at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma and a Ph.D. at the Grenoble Ecole de Management in France.
