Course | Entrepreneurship


Entrepreneurship provides learners with an understanding of the critical role played by entrepreneurs in the national and global economy. Learners gain the skills necessary to become entrepreneurs and the attitudes, characteristics, and techniques that successful entrepreneurs have and that they will need to succeed. Building on concepts introduced in Principles of Finance, the Entrepreneurship course offers experientially learning by encouraging learners to evaluate, develop, and work with the business ideas they already have or those they conceive during the course.
