ENT-260 - Entrepreneurial Field Studies

3 credits

In this course students will apply their small business knowledge to a real situation. Students will work individually or in a group of no more than three on a significant entrepreneurial project. The curriculum focuses the student on specific concepts, expertise and skills that are the key to successful business start-ups. A typical project involves problem definition, development of the team work plan, completion of research and analysis, derivation of conclusions and recommendations, possibly some implementation, and generation of a final report. This course is based on the concept of balanced mentorship, which benefits both students and the entrepreneur mentor. Students will be assigned to a start-up firm or a firm developing at a business incubator (STCC's Springfield Enterprise Center.)
