This course is the first course in a two-course series on entrepreneurship and is a prerequisite for course two. Course one provides the knowledge and fundamental concepts of entrepreneurship; course two (BUS 3041) applies those concepts to cases and provides students hands-on experiences in entrepreneurial environments. This course provides the foundations for understanding the nature, challenges, and rewards of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is approached as a special and unique way of thinking and behaving. Students will gain an understanding that entrepreneurship is a predictable and manageable process, applicable to profit, non-profit, and public organizations.
