Global Business Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurs exist in every part of the globe. They are an important element of economic activity for nations on a local and international level - They help in creating and serving markets through their products and services, providing jobs and extending human potential through innovation.
In this course, we explored what entrepreneurship is through case studies of prominent businesses like Facebook, Amazon and social enterprises like Kiva that now have a global presence and operate at scale. Students were able to identify different aspects of a business, best practices, tools and mindsets needed for success and innovation. Students experientially learned what it's like to build a business from scratch during this course - From coming up with an idea to testing to implementation to actual sales and business management.
They polished their social-emotional skills, built creative confidence and enhanced their problem-solving skills.
