Across the nation, students are seeking programs that teach them how to run a business. With the realities of corporate downsizing it's no wonder that today's students are arming themselves with entrepreneurial skills that offer increased career options.
The Haller Enterprise Institute is an innovative program that encourages highly motivated students from any major to begin their own business while they continue their education. The Institute is named after Henry E. and Grace Mary Haller, major benefactors to the College with a keen interest in entrepreneurship.
The core of the Institute is the advisory board comprised local business leaders and Thiel faculty and administration. The group provides excellent support, guidance and encouragement to start student entrepreneurs. Prof. David Miller is the director of The Haller Institute.
The purpose of The Haller Enterprise Institute is to encourage, promote and support entrepreneurship in Thiel students regardless of your major field. Come and meet our advisory board and other students active in this exciting program.
