MGT 2973

This course will employ a “learn by doing” approach. The students will first learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and will then be challenged to assess their business ideas to determine if they can be converted into profitable enterprises. In the last ten weeks of the course, students will work in teams to launch one of these enterprises which may include running “push-cart” businesses on campus (a successful activity used at Babson College). Examples of student businesses could include delivery services, dry cleaning, online auction services, selling vitamins and health food, bicycle repair services, Internet-based apps, a campus thrift store, etc. At the end of the semester, students will present financial and performance reports for their business ventures, and a review of what helped and hindered their success.
