The Center for Life Beyond Reed

Entrepreneurship & Business Strategy

The diversity among professional interests and ideas drives our business leaders to continuously create new ventures and innovations. Through a deep analysis of local and global markets, companies are constantly being built to meet the needs of the consumer. By understanding one’s purpose, students are able to explore what strengths they have and apply them when searching for an appropriate and befitting occupation within these business structures. These unique professions have allowed many of our own Reedies to engage in these markets to not only create value for the consumer but impact the world through meaningful work in the Entrepreneurship and Business Strategy community.
