Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Online/distance learning
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: identify the root of a problem, determine who cares about the problem and articulate assumptions about the problem. After testing the assumptions, students will determine market size, ideal customer, minimum viable product (MVP), and develop an initial business model.


The course is designed to teach young adults how to identify problems, test assumptions and identify individuals who would care if the problem is solved. Each module of the course features a different theme with interactive group activities, individual reflection time and mini-presentations. The curriculum prepares students to work in an entrepreneurial team environment, teaches them how to build problem statements and how to translate their entrepreneurial experience into any career.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Business, Management, or Entrepreneurship (1/23).
