You will be given the opportunity to build this understanding through various interactive exercises. In completing these successfully you will develop a methodology for deriving solutions to those issues. Areas covered during the course will include marketing, management teams (including leadership and team building), financial analysis and forecasting, cash flow management and business planning will also be covered. How much we get out of this experience depends to a great extent on how well we all communicate. There will be an emphasis on interactive learning . Team based project assignments and active class discussions will be utilized to afford you the best possible opportunity to fully apply the concepts. Application of all of the above course content in a real world setting will be delivered by student teams developing and presenting a business plan for a start-up enterprise. Successful completion of the course will require that you share your thoughts, ideas and opinions . Outside speakers with experience in various areas of concern to the entrepreneur (e.g., funding, intellectual property, and marketing) will be brought in whenever possible.
