Course Objectives

This course deals with the process of creating new ventures in dynamic business environments. We analyze the competitive environments that entrepreneurs face, how new entrants alter competition, how industries are created and destroyed through competition, and how entrepreneurial strategies can ultimately generate economic growth.

We also examine the internal management of entrepreneurial ventures. We study how entrepreneurs create and develop new ventures, launch new technologies, and initiate new business models. Finally, we explore how entrepreneurial attitudes and actions can be encouraged within a business. Our ultimate goal is to train future managers who can recognize and manage both the potentials and the threats of entrepreneurial ventures, creating and sustaining competitive advantage.
