Business and Entrepreneurship


Fall 2024

Monday, September 9 – Friday, December 20, 2024


Fixed-Pace Course





This class is a hands-on introduction to the essentials of creating and managing a business venture. In addition to investigating the fundamentals of markets, supply and demand, business organization, management, marketing and communications, human resources, and accounting, students will put theory into practice by conceiving, researching and developing their own proposals for launch-ready entrepreneurial ventures. Our emphasis throughout will be on collaborative work, strategic goal setting, and creative problem solving.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
