New Entrepreneurship Course for All Students
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
Then you should enroll in Exploring Entrepreneurship, a 3-credit
elective course that is offered for the first time in the Fall 2013
semester and is open to all non-business 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. The course will hold a “Shark Tank” like competition to judge the
best business ideas!
Exploring Entrepreneurship will be taught by Adjunct Professor
Ernest Ruffin, Jr., a successful entrepreneur. The course will meet
Mondays and Wednesdays, from 2 p.m to 3:15 p.m. For more information,
