Full course description
Through readings, dialogue and project-based learning, this course seeks to develop an understanding of the business and leadership components that participants will study and utilize in their college and early professional careers. The Business and Leadership Institute (BLI) operates in a collaborative virtual environment; instead of traditional classroom lectures, participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of business and leadership through activities such as:
- Case study analysis
- Video analysis
- Expert speakers
- Small group collaborative work
The BLI will culminate with the creation of a group business plan; storyboarding of the “big idea”; and presentation of their start-up concept to a panel of “Project Funders”. Please note: this course does not focus on any specific business functional area but instead provides a broad overview of the concept of business and leadership and is geared towards students interested in pursuing business majors and/or leadership in organizational settings of all kinds.
Instructor: Dr. Courtney Cole
This course will meet live every Friday from 10AM-12PM ET.
