Practical Entrepreneurship B

Why This Class

As a parent, you want your child to add value to society. You also want them to thrive financially—no matter how much the economy might change. One of the best ways for your child to do both is by becoming an entrepreneur.

In this course, students will learn the basics of entrepreneurship by building their own business and figuring out how to make it sustainable. They’ll learn how to create value by fulfilling the needs of a specific customer base, and discover the economic forces that make or break small businesses. Perhaps most importantly, students will discover that most successful small business owners don’t “hit it big” on their first try—their success is fueled not just by ambition but their ability to adapt and persevere.

Students will emerge from this course understanding the fundamentals of what it takes to start and run a successful business. As a result, they’ll be inspired and prepared to make a difference in the economy of tomorrow.
