    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Global Foundations of Business is a required course at Bryant University. The course revolves around a business plan that you and your group must conduct. You come up with a new product or service with you team and you create a 100 page business plan. This course definitely improved not only my accounting and finance skills, but my marketing, presentation, and ability to work with group skills. In one semester, I went from not knowing anything about business, to knowing how to write a 100 page business plan. This class was difficult but it was definitely worth it because I feel so much more prepared for my business courses in the future.

    Course highlights:

    As I mentioned before, this course taught me many different skills. Being an accounting major, I was intimidated because of how little I knew about it. However, GFOB showed me that even when I am challenged, I can get anything done. I learned so much about accounting and financing by actively having to calculate certain things, such as projected revenue over a certain period of time. I also learned how to effectively market a product or service. Another important skill I learned was how to work with people when we disagree. This semester long project revolved around group work, so it was inevitable to come across some disagreements. However, this course taught me how to work with others in a respectful manner, and it taught me that it is normal to disagree with others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pick a good group of people for your team! You are working with these people all semester. I would also say that you need to really boost up your creativity skills because creativity was really important for this course. Another key thing to remember for this course is to really be patient with others and to always put in your best effort.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course offers students the ability to be able to work with others, while contributing new innovative ideas to a group of students required to collaborate on a single project.

    Course highlights:

    The business project. This was a project that the whole course was based around, in which a group of students would create and maintain their own business that they made up. It would also require presenting it to other people, including the final presentation at the end of the year. I learned a lot about how to start up a business, and I learned a lot about presenting the business to potential customers, as well as investors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that students put in significant time and effort as the course is very useful when learning about all aspects of a business, whether it is the marketing, or operations. Even though the course is required, it is a very insightful one that requires full attention to detail.
