Harrer, MBA, MSBA (213) 712-4747 harrer@marshall.usc.edu Office - Bridge Hall One (Lower Level) Coaching & Mentoring Hours: Monday & Wednesday 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Email for appointment for other times The Purpose of the Course – Becoming the CEO of Me, Inc. Entrepreneurship is an attitude and mindset in addition to a set of skills. At its heart is a credo – “One Boss for a Lifetime – ME.” Whether you start your own business or bring an entrepreneurial approach to your work for an organization, you will ensure your success by always assuming the role as the CEO of Me, Inc . At its heart is your ability to look creatively at business opportunities to create value in all its forms: money, independence, and influence. We will explore a set of tools and techniques for identifying new entrepreneurial opportunities by learning about an industry in depth. Entrepreneurship is about finding your passions and talents and finding a market which needs them – if you have passion in what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. It’s also about challenge, persistence and generating market impact by creating new execution strategies for doing old things. It is not for the faint of heart, the timid, those who hate ambiguity or want everything in black and white. It is for the self-motivated, independent, persistent individual who has a sense of humor, can learn and bounce back from failure and is willing to take and manage calculated risks. This course is a “think about it” course in which you will learn the ‘mindset’ of an entrepreneur and will prepare you for further studies in our program. Benefits of the Course In this course, you will develop your conceptual and practical knowledge of entrepreneurship and venture creation . This course is an excellent opportunity to find out if entrepreneurship is the right option for you. During the semester, you will also benefit from the following: 1. The opportunity to learn and develop an entrepreneurial mindset (you don't have to start a business to do that). 2. The expertise and entrepreneurial experience of the Lloyd Greif Center faculty. 3. The case studies and lessons learned from alumni entrepreneurs, Advisory Council, and entrepreneurial guest lecturers. 4. The opportunity to network with entrepreneurs at a variety of formal and informal events throughout the academic year. 5. The formation of a strategy that will serve you well through your lifetime in how you tackle an opportunity, make it yours. 6.
