EIP students take all of the core courses in the business administration discipline, as well as 30 hours of specialized courses focused on the development and management of equine enterprises, events, and activities. Since we are located in the heart of the famed Kentucky horse country, our students also have the opportunity for field trips, internships, and contacts with prominent industry professionals who visit the classroom.
The experienced and diverse faculty in the EIP and the College of Business provide students with a unique opportunity to learn essential business skills and apply them in an industry that is worldwide in scope.
Individuals who have completed a baccalaureate degree (BS or BA) may seek to earn a one-year postgraduate Certificate in Equine Business.
Students from 16 participating states may qualify for Kentucky in-state tuition rates through the Academic Common Market.
The College of Business is the only AACSB International accredited business degree in the world with an equine major, and is ranked among the leading entrepreneurship programs in North America.
