McDaniel College wants to take students to a place not often associated with liberal arts schools: the business world.
This spring, the college is hosting its first “McDaniel Innovation Challenge” competition, in which students submit their ideas – for businesses, products or creative ways to address social problems – to a panel of experts. The creators of the top five written submissions will be chosen to make live pitches before judges on April 11.
The top prize? $10,000.
First and second runners-up will get $5,500 and $2,500, respectively, according to the university.
The Westminster-based institution has also launched a special entrepreneurship program, open to students from any major, designed to illustrate what it takes to develop new business ideas.
