BMGT198C: Enterprise, Leadership and Markets - Campus
As a student in this course you will spend three weeks connecting to the University of Maryland while learning from top faculty at the Smith School of Business. This is the time to discover things about yourself and define the “why” of your life. What problems in the world do you want to solve? Why are these important to you?
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.
