As a significant contributor of jobs and innovations, entrepreneurship is vital to the stability of the American economy. Having a million dollar idea is one thing, but having the education and skill to execute the idea and turn it into a successful business is another. Enter Mt. Sierra College and the true entrepreneur.
Knowledge is indeed power when starting a new business or when integrating skills with other forward-thinking companies. The Entrepreneurship degree provides students with the skills to both launch a new business or to function successfully in an established corporation that employs entrepreneurial management strategies. As students analyze business strategies and explore how to secure funding, they also learn how to write business plans, develop marketing strategies, and examine potential markets ripe for an entrepreneurial enterprise. Via faculty and networking opportunities, students are introduced to industry innovators who provide invaluable perspectives on starting and operating a business.
Students in the Entrepreneurship Program receive a solid foundation in a variety of business-based courses taught by faculty with years of professional experience, rounded out with courses in computer and information technology. Classes are designed to enhance an understanding of business and technology assessment, analysis, organizational growth, and management. In addition, students gain a working knowledge of essential computer and information technology. General education courses selected for their applicability to entrepreneurship make up the balance of classes. Hands-on labs and optional faculty-supervised internships put classroom learning into action.
With the bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship, graduates are especially equipped to start a business of their own or to enter the work force in entry to mid-level positions such as Management or Technical Consultant, Market Researcher, Budget Analyst, Risk Analyst, Sales Analyst, Sales Representative, and Sales Manager.
