Entrepreneurial Leadership

For part-time students, we strongly recommend taking this course in the second year of studies, in order to gain a deeper understanding of its contents.

 

Course Objectives

This course uses case studies of an entrepreneur, a businessperson, a politician, and an adventurer to achieve its primary objective of having students develop a “feel” for how s/he should think and act when s/he begins to pursue a path of creation and innovation. Students will think deeply about their personal qualities, ambitions, philosophy, vision, and mission as business people and aim to ultimately identify their own missions.
