Faculty Message:

In business, nothing will ever replace experience, and certainly not theory. My goal through this course is to simulate real life business situations so that students can gain a high level understanding of key principles and acquire new mental models that are essential for anyone pursuing a career as an entrepreneur or intrapreneur.
