EDGE Center

We call it the “EDGE Center” which is short for Entrepreneurial Development through Guided Experiences.

For students that clear EDGE is that they gain valuable experience and build their portfolio to set themselves apart in their professional careers.

For organizations and businesses, the EDGE comes from working with students to develop quality communication, marketing and management assets.
