BUS 325 — Entre-vation
"Entre-vation: A Hands-on Approach to Entrepreneurship and Innovation” provides a unique opportunity for students to learn about entrepreneurship and innovation from some of the area’s leading entrepreneurs and innovators. Through an innovative, case-based and hands-on approach, students will learn about entrepreneurship and innovation as well as creativity, thinking “out of the box,” risk-taking, venture capital, and social responsibility. Students will travel to area businesses to hear the stories behind the owners or innovative thinkers within the organization, and to tour the facilities or headquarters. Students will work in teams to research, create, and develop informed innovative solutions to real-life cases entailing problems or challenges within these businesses and/or industries.
Students will be required to both generate and effectively communicate innovative ideas and entrepreneurial practices throughout the course by developing their own ideas from conception to completion. At the end of the course, the teams will present their ideas to local entrepreneurs for debate and discussion.
