What would it be like to start your own business? This survey course broadly examines what entrepreneurship entails, including how entrepreneurs recognize and follow up on opportunities to create new businesses, as well as what it takes to survive and thrive with a start-up. We will focus especially on people and will emphasize the process that they go through to start large or small businesses. The course is designed to help students develop an entrepreneurial mindset for creating economic and social value. To mesh with our voyage, we will examine these concepts from an international perspective, studying how the policies and practices of different cultural and country environments affect entrepreneurs, identifying commonalities and differences, and exploring examples where enterprise is encouraged and supported in different ways.
