  4. Other Course Information

    A. Objectives

    Varies depending on internship/project. Base learning objective is that students gain a practical understanding of the demand placed on the entrepreneur in starting and operating a new business.

    B. Learning Outcomes

    Provides students with a practical understanding of what it takes to run a new venture. This outcome is assessed in two ways. For students engaging in an internship, the sponsoring entrepreneur will provide an evaluation fo the student over the course of the semester. For students writing their own business plan, an entrepreneur, consultant, venture capitalist, etc. is asked to provide written feedback on teh business plan. Feedback will specifically address feasibility (Can the business plan be implemented), likelihood of success and identify any issue that may pose a fatal flaw in the proposed business model. The formal outside feedback does not reflect on students' final grades. This helps ensure the feedback is honest and forthright.
