The purpose of this course is to give the student tools, information, and strategies to equip them in a way that will give them the best chance of success when starting a business. We will discuss topics such as risk, economics, the global market, ethics, legal considerations, organization, human resources, and marketing. As a student reads, completes practices and assignments, discusses with others, and takes assessments, he or she will gain a practical understanding of the components of a small business and the steps that one takes to create and establish that business, from the idea, to the business plan, to the strategies for helping that business to succeed and grow.
