The Entrepreneurship and Small Business Class is a lecture-based three-credit course that will provide students with valuable insights into how entrepreneurs start and grow companies.
Students will learn how to identify customers for a new venture; how to build a business model around those customers; and how to obtain financing to support business goals. Through engaging lectures and hands-on projects, students will discover tools practiced by successful entrepreneurs. By the end of the course, participants will have an understanding of the entrepreneurial mindset and what it takes to thrive in their own venture. Whether interest lies in solving the world's biggest problems, creating the next commercial success or starting a non-profit, this course will provide the tools needed to test out ideas in the real world.
