Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship
LMU has been teaching entrepreneurship with an emphasis on ethics and social responsibility since 1972. In fact, we were one of the first schools in the U.S. to offer an entrepreneurship program. We're also considered one of the best – having been ranked among the top programs in the nation by The Princeton Review, Entrepreneur, Bloomberg Businessweek, U.S. News & World Report, and Inc. magazine.
Our graduates generate about $1B revenues every year, and have sold about $1B of businesses. The pace of such accomplishments has picked up in recent years: our alumni and students have raised tens of millions of dollars in capital and sold companies worth hundreds of millions.
We are also fortunate to be located in the center of one of the most vibrant entrepreneurship communities in the world, Silicon Beach. This new mecca for tech and innovation has served our students well, offering an abundance of internship and job opportunities.
