Description

The campus-wide entrepreneurship program will require two 3- credit courses, Business Basics and Applied Creativity, that can be taken in any order. The intent is for the Applied Creativity course to cover problem identification (understanding a target population, assessing their needs and validating a new product or service idea), and the Business Basics course covers how to make that idea real in the form of a specific product and an organization that can produce and distribute it. The Business Basics course covers a wide range of topics. The intent is to deliver a conceptual overview of important business issues related to start-ups. Students may not leave expert in any one topic, but should understand the challenges and where they would go next for more depth.

Objective: This course prepares students to manage business projects, programs and portfolios to successful, value-creating, career-building conclusions.

The course is divided into 5 modules covering Why do this? How will you do this? Marshalling human and capital resources, and promoting/selling your product.

Course Requirements:

Deliverables and Grading: Based on written cases problem sets, exam, and final project. These approximate percentages should frame your efforts.

Written cases (2 graded) 20%
Online Problem Sets (4 required) 20%
Exam 30%
Final Project: Paper, Presentation, online product 30%

Intended Audience:

Sophomore standing. Math: Basic algebra, see self-test sheet

Assumption: No requirement to take Applied Creativity, the other UM-wide core course
