MGMT801 - Entrepreneurship
There are two versions of MGMT 801 this fall, thought both teach the same foundation material in the Entrepreneurial Management program and have the schedules and content. However, the 10:30 sections are the SIMULATION sections. Just as in the other 801 classes, in the Simulation sections the final team project will involve developing a pitch for a new business (you can work across sections with groups doing the standard versions of 801), but you will also be playing the award-winning Looking Glass entrepreneurship simulation rather than doing individual reaction papers. The Looking Glass simulation is an intense and fun 3-week simulation that is played outside of class and gives you the chance to experience what running a startup company is like. The simulation takes more time during the three weeks it runs, thought total time commitments are the same across both class versions. MGMT 801 serves as both a stand-alone and as a preparatory course to those interested in writing and implementing a business plan (the subject of the semester-long course, MGMT 806).
Format: Lectures and case discussions
