The Entrepreneur for a Day program aims at enhancing the relevance of the Entrepreneurial Mindset among students at SMU through meaningful connections with innovators and practicing entrepreneurs by way of an experiential learning opportunity. Through this initiative, students can experience a day in the life of a Founder. Students will witness firsthand the integral workings of an organization by working directly with the Founder and other senior members.
