Interested in learning more about entrepreneurship or a for profit business? This Student-Originated Studies (SOS) will support students pursuing individual work in entrepreneurship and for profit business related topics. Such topics may include internships and/or research projects in entrepreneurship and profit making business themes. Twelve credits of this SOS will focus on individualized learning goals. The remaining four credits will be earned through common work and a required weekly group meeting to help form a peer support group. This program is ideal for self-motivated students with an interest in entrepreneurship and profit making businesses.
Students will develop an in-program internship or research project that will be for 25-30 hours of work per week in scope, and everyone will come together as a class once a week. The common work will include a group meeting one day a week, maintenance of a “field” journal to capture research and internship learning, weekly readings and seminar, group discussion papers, and a final paper and presentation. In the required weekly group meetings, students will explore timely issues relevant to entrepreneurial, profit making businesses. Students’ individual projects/internships will provide the foundation for exploring relevant business topics and give a richer and broader basis for discussion.
