Students will learn the value of business in society and develop enterprise and leadership skills that enable personal happiness and upward mobility. This is an intensive course where each student will go through the process of creating a new venture, first as a solo entrepreneur and later in teams. Work will be done in a highly collaborative group setting and will include evaluating opportunities, conducting customer discovery, developing a business model, and presenting a venture pitch. Students will proactively apply what they learn to real-world problems while gaining a better understanding of the entrepreneurial mindset. Additionally, they will be exposed to marketing, strategy, market-based economics and personal finance. This course is offered through the Ed Snider Center for Enterprise and Markets in the Robert H. Smith School of Business. Maryland Smith provides a limited number of scholarships for students enrolled in BMGT198C.
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.
