Through a multidisciplinary approach, this course focuses on recognizing a business opportunity and developing the opportunity into a business. The controlling functions (accounting, finance, marketing, management) as well as legal and economic considerations are applied. Student responsibility and initiative are encouraged as business strategies are created, planned, and presented as a final product - a business plan for an actual business venture. Through the process of developing the business plan, students acquire skills necessary to operate a successful business.
