AEM 1210 - [Entrepreneurial Thought Leadership Seminar]


     
Fall. Next offered 2015-2016. 1 credit.

D. Streeter.

Using various formats for each 2-hour session (debate, panel, case study), the course serves as an introduction to some of the key issues in the field of entrepreneurship. The course materials, readings, and guest speakers will touch on such questions as: Is entrepreneurship different than small business? What is the best way to fund a business? Can one person lead a business through all its stages of growth (seed, startup, growth, exit)? In addition, the course will expose participants to the ideas of thoughtful leaders in for-profit and non-profit sectors, about new business models that are being used to create and grow new companies in the “connected world”. Pathways and career options in the entrepreneurial ecosystem will be illustrated and discussed. Throughout, students will participate actively by leading discussions, presenting cases, contributing to breakout sessions, and reflecting on course materials.
