BUS 137 Entrepreneurial Mindset

Brains and talent are just the starting point to lifelong success - you also need the ability to quickly sense, get organized, take action, and persevere in response to opportunities and challenges. Building an entrepreneurial mindset means developing knowledge, tools and habits including the skills of play, experimentation and creativity; the roadmap of design thinking and the ability to understand innovation as a process. In this course we will define entrepreneurship as a business approach and apply core, easily accessible business concepts to your own, student generated new business ideas to practice an entrepreneurial mindset. Every class will introduce you to entrepreneurs from a variety of settings (for-profit, nonprofit and socially minded organizations) and with an overall multi-dimensional intersectionality lens.
