The Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership offers programs which broaden the understanding, appreciation and inclusion of entrepreneurship in all disciplines across the Illinois campus. We view entrepreneurship through social, artistic, intellectual and scientific lenses, in addition to the traditional business perspective. We offer a broad base of workshops, lectures, and experiential learning programs that reach out to the campus and the community, including internships and business plan competitions that have involved hundreds of students and have impacted local firms.
