Undergraduate Courses

The aim of these courses is to take the mystique out of entrepreneurship, exploring the tools and techniques that entrepreneurs use to maximize their chances of success. The sequence is more “hands on” than many traditional business school courses, and all classes are open to undergraduates outside the business school.
