How a CSUF Entrepreneurship education helped Patrick Hayes start his businesses

One of the first things that students in the CSUF Entrepreneurship program learn is that the classes take a lot of work. In addition to book work, students are required to do consulting projects for real businesses and to launch their own business. These projects are called High Impact Practices and the CSUF Entrepreneurship program requires its students to take six of these courses over a two year period (or shorter).

This is what Patrick Hayes went through and all that work had a purpose: Entrepreneurship is not only hard but can also be very time consuming. Entrepreneurs regularly work 80 hour weeks and Patrick’s education prepared him for that kind of commitment. Is all that work worth it? For Patrick and most other entrepreneurs the answer is unequivocally “Yes!!!”
