Anyone here know of any business schools (college, university, etc.) that have an entrepreneurship program that focuses on business leadership and ownership while leaving out any employement focused work?

I take classes at different schools and I can't seem to find a school that has a business program focused on business leadership and ownership. There is always a focus on becoming an employee.

I would like to find a school that segregates based on objectives.

As I've been looking at colleges/universities for our oldest child I keep seeing 'Entrepreneurship' degrees. I have literally looked all over the country but I do recall Utah, NY, CA, IL listing that. Just type in a college name and then look under 'Academics'. Trust me, they are out there!

I feel like entrepreneurs are being discouraged in this country because it's not something you learn much in college. Even in the business courses, they teach more about large companies than small ones. I say ask around people in various businesses, take their pointers, and try to get ur feet wet urself. Some things are better learned on the job than a college.

I took an online certificate course from my community college, actually I took 2 or 3 of them. They costed 100 each. One was on building a business plan. Another was on a web language. That's a cheap and very practical way to build skills and discover your knack.

Ironically most Business Schools I found, and the one I attended for MBA was primary focused on Entrepreneur 'self-employment'. (It is good to learn something about employment as well, after all, the school needs to keep 'general credibility' for ALL its grads). All said, I was pretty disappointed in an 'Entrepreneur' focused attempt by EDU. I felt those students who had not been immersed in business already (for many yrs) were getting the short end of the stick. "Reality" is not bad for a U to convey (tho most profs are too aloof to transfer that type of Knowledge). I think I only had one course that was employment focused. A few others touched on specifics related to employment, but were largely 'self-employed' / skill assessment / filling the knowledge gaps with partners or consultants...
