MGT 251. Nature and Foundations of Entrepreneurship. 3 Credit Hours.

This course seeks to understand some of the basic social, legal, cultural, and economic infrastructure that enables and sustains the creation of new enterpris es. Although conventional perspectives on entrepreneurship often overlook poli tical or religious activists whose "products" are not "sold" in traditional mar kets, a more expansive view considers actions that transform idea into enterpri ses that generate intellectual, social, cultural, religious, or economic value. Therory, data, and case study will be covered to help students to think both broadly and deeply about what it means - and what it takes - to be an entrepren eur, and what characterizes the entrepreneurial society.
