Course Overview

Thinking about starting your own business or have you just launched a small business? Do you have a small business idea that has potential and you would like to put a start up plan in place? Are you looking to develop your entrepreneurial mindset further and apply it to your start up concept? This Entrepreneurship and Business Start Up course takes you on a self-reflective and business planning journey, giving you the skills and tools that support the creation and sustainability of your small business. This 60 hour course is a combination of 40 hours of online live weekly instruction and 20 hours of independent work outside of class. Prior to attending class each week, you will be assigned pre-work for the upcoming class (an investment of about 1.5 hours per week). As part of the coursework, students will utilize a business planning tool to build out their small business concept. Students will be directed to obtain a short-term license for this business planning tool which is in addition to the course fees (approximately $85 extra).
