To ensure a new and challenging experience from the one-off formal consulting projects or new venture business plans you would have completed in HBA, this course challenges students with a series of real-time, real-world experiences dealing with the way business innovations and disruptive forces effect entrepreneurs and leaders.

This course is an opportunity to use research as a backdrop and then interact with entrepreneurs at many different stages and perspectives of owning, launching, advising, and managing enterprises.

We aspire to have practical, hands-on experiences over a three-month project cycle.
