REDe Entrepreneurship Summit
The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) proudly presents the inaugural REDe Entrepreneurship Summit on October 18-19, 2018. Our goal for the REDe Summit is to inspire students with varied academic backgrounds, such as in the arts, engineering, pharmacy, or business, to engage in entrepreneurship.
Be Ready - Study Entrepreneurship
The average graduate will work for 8 employers by the time you are 30. You can’t trust an employer to help you find career and market opportunities anymore. You need a degree that gets you ready to take on the challenges you will find outside Ole Miss. This is it.
