Pirates Pitch Audience Choice Award

Do you dream of starting your own business? Do you wonder how the Google guys created a company that changed the world? Would you like to add a “Wow” course to your resume that will impress potential employers?

Then you should enroll in Exploring Entrepreneurship, a 3-credit elective course that is offered for the first time in the Spring 2013 semester and is open to all undergraduates at the University, from freshmen to seniors. BMGT 2110 Exploring Entrepreneurship is offered through the Stillman School of Business but is designed specifically for non-business students. So if you are interested in entrepreneurship but majoring in nursing, biology or public relations, this course is for you! There are no prerequisites.

In this course, you’ll learn how entrepreneurs acquire the skills and insights that enable them to launch successful ventures. Additionally, you’ll learn how to assess your own passions, strengths and values as they relate to entrepreneurship. You’ll also work with other students in teams to develop business ideas and write a business plans.

Exploring Entrepreneurship will be taught by Dr. Susan Young, Ph.D., an assistant professor of entrepreneurship in the Department of Management. The course will meet Mondays and Wednesdays, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.

Another plus: this is a great course to take if you are interested in entering Pirates Pitch 2013, our business plan competition that will kick off in January and is open to all University students. Pirates Pitch will award over $5,000 in prizes to the student teams with the best business ideas. For details, see www.shu.edu/go/pirates-pitch.
