  • Business & Entrepreneurship class

    Students grow their entrepreneurial skills and mindset while helping real startups and businesses in our Business & Entrepreneurship class.

    This full-year survey of business and entrepreneurship provides an introduction to business creation, management, finance, marketing, sales, and human resources. Students are exposed to the theoretical underpinnings of the business world while engaging with experienced practitioners in various areas of industry.

    Additionally, working in small groups, students implement the concepts learned through the development of two different business plans - one for a new for-profit business venture and one for a non-profit social venture. These plans are adjudicated by local business and non-profit experts.
"I was excited to gain real-world experience in my Business & Entrepreneurship class. We helped real businesses with real problems, presented solutions to these businesses, and learned to work in teams. I'm looking forward to using those skills in college and beyond.” – Brandon '17
