MGMT 288 - Introduction to Entrepreneurship

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: MGMT 130 or consent of instructor
Entrepreneurism represents a field of study that helps us understand how entrepreneurs take the initiative from developing an idea and moving the idea from the idea stage to a successful business. The study of entrepreneurism also focuses on the preparation of the aspiring entrepreneur. Students learn about the personal attributes of successful entrepreneurs. To best understand entrepreneurism and the entrepreneur, students have the opportunity to put their ideas into focus by conducting the research needed to develop a business plan and prepare a presentation of this research to an audience. An entrepreneur self-assessment project and a study of entrepreneurs provide additional ways students learn about the subject. By the end of the semester, students will demonstrate the knowledge and skill-set needed to start a business.
