    BMGT262: The Enterprising Leader (in person/online)

    Designed to help students develop leadership skills in order to identify their personal and professional purpose with an entrepreneurial mindset, and create strategies to develop their abilities and achieve their aspirations. Working in a collaborative group setting, students will identify solutions to problems they find meaningful to solve and will evaluate opportunities, conduct customer discovery, develop a business model, and present a venture pitch. This self-discovery course will introduce the "CEO of ME, Inc." framework and the strategic initiatives matrix and business model canvas, all useful to guide the choices that lie ahead, and to develop win-win relationships.

    BMGT120: Accounting: The Key to Business Decisions (online)

    Accounting has long been known as the language of business. Like any other language, accounting is an invaluable skill set that can be applied to every aspect of your life. Accounting teaches you a brand-new way of thinking which can be translated to any industry or career. This course will cover how basic financial statements are created, what each statement represents for a company, and how to interpret these financial statements to draw meaningful conclusions and make sound business decisions. This course is good preparation for future introductory accounting courses like BMGT220 Principles of Accounting I.
