BA 3800 - Entrepreneurship

3.00 credits.
Entrepreneurs make significant investments in an economy and thus contribute to the economic well-being of all stake holders.  Since the great recession of 2008, the role of the entrepreneur has become even more crucial. It is, therefore important to gain a solid understanding of the characteristics of entrepreneurship. This course explores the nature of entrepreneurship and what it means to be an entrepreneur.  Emphasis will be placed on the unique skill-set that is required to be effective in this role, including vision, creativity, innovation, planning, critical thinking, leadership, communication, and the willingness to take risks. The components of an economy and what the role of the entrepreneur is within the economy will be discussed. Case studies and exercises will be used to illustrate how the theoretical framework translates into the realities of our chaotic economic environment.
