Section Description: Entrepreneurship is a defining characteristic of work and life in the modern world. New business models, products/services, processes, and organizational practices make it virtually impossible for business professionals to settle down into routine work and linear career paths. Moreover, entrepreneurial activities have a significant impact on individual lives and careers as they enable the growth and sustainability of organizations. By introducing change and innovation into the economic and social system, entrepreneurs force other individuals and organizations to constantly adapt. This course focuses on developing a business model to assess the viability of an innovative idea. Students will experientially learn the critical role of business foundations such as accountancy, finance, marketing, management, operations, and strategy in order to create new value and new ventures. Regardless of career ambitions, developing a deeper appreciation for entrepreneurship and new value creation, as well as improving your ability to work entrepreneurially, is likely to enhance the achievement of your career goals.
