Academy of Buisness and Entrepreneurship(K60B)

The Business and Entrepreneurship Academy teaches students how to prepare and execute a comprehensive strategy for launching a new venture. The best way to understand the entrepreneurial process is to take a hands-on, experiential approach. In this major, students will interact extensively with the business community both inside and outside the classroom and produce a plan that is both defensible to potential investors and actionable in the real world. Our well-rounded curriculum includes business management, finance, accounting, marketing and entrepreneurship. These courses are designed to strengthen leadership, problem solving, organization, and management skills. Each course of study provides an in-depth analysis of business, financial and corporate trends and strategies in the marketplace. Whether students decide to go on to pursue a higher education or to start a career, they will have a comprehensive understanding of the business and financial systems that governs our society.
