Course Catalog


This course develops passionate, motivated entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking and acting; it is a practice, integrated with theory, that can be learned and applied in any organizational setting. This course helps participants grow already-formed ideas, and those without ideas learn how to identify opportunities and act on them. All participants learn to create and build their ventures and discover how business ideas fit into the broader society. This course is based on the theme “act, learn, build,” therefore, class sessions are active learning experiences. Participants acquire an understanding of the entrepreneurial method, a practice of opportunity recognition, resource gathering and team building, all driven by business methodologies in idea generation, feasibility analysis and business plan creation. This course helps participants re-evaluate their own views of entrepreneurship within the framework of entrepreneurial thinking and putting this mindset into action.
