Entrepreneurship, the great business thinker and teacher Peter Drucker observed, isn’t so much an art or a science as a practice.There’s no substitute for rolling up your sleeves and diving into action.
Certainly, there are important skills entrepreneurs should learn, about market research, budgeting and planning, and making a pitch to potential investors or partners. Studying entrepreneurship with us will help you learn the critical skills.
But the most important thing is to jump in, and put your skills to work. We’ll help you with that, too. Our entrepreneurship program is built on the concept of hands-on work and close collaboration between faculty and student.
BUS 320 Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurial opportunities are everywhere. This course will develop your ability to identify opportunities and translate them into value-creating enterprise.
Students in the course unbundle what can be a confusing set of tasks into logical and orderly steps for personal success. A disciplined, well-researched, well-written business plan addresses the key challenges a new business venture will face, and increases the chances that it will survive.
BUS 320 Entrepreneurship provides the foundation for you to take your idea from the concept stage to an operating business.
Business Plan Capstone
Students who want to start their own business can choose to do a complete, detailed business plan for their senior capstone. If you choose this track, you’ll work closely with a faculty advisor on developing your own business plan, doing all the research necessary on market opportunities, financing options, operations, and more.
