Startup & Entrepreneurship
The goal of the Startup & Entrepreneurship course is to foster the entrepreneurial mindset in students so that they can see and assess opportunities in all types of business, whether it is a startup or an established corporation. First, students will learn about the challenges as well as the opportunities that accompany the creation, management, and funding of a startup. Next, students will learn how to use entrepreneurial thinking in an established corporation in order to identify opportunities for new products, ventures, and acquisitions.
Students will gain an entrepreneurial toolset to use in developing business models, revenue plans, and pitch decks with the goal of developing a sustainable and profitable business. Throughout the course, students will apply their knowledge to examine case studies, using their newly acquired toolset to analyze actual business scenarios to enrich their learning.
