Business and Entrepreneurship
This course provides students with an intensive introduction to the core business disciplines including strategy, marketing, innovation, investments, finance, and entrepreneurship. Students will then apply these ideas to a range of research assignments and creative projects similar to those seen in undergraduate and graduate-level business courses. In past summers, topics covered in the business course have included research analysis of real companies, case study-based research, approaches to business strategy, design thinking, creativity and leadership, organizational psychology, product management, social entrepreneurship, and other topics. Group work and development of communication and presentation skills are emphasized.
