Professor: Tessa Misiaszek
At the heart of any ambitious business-person there is an entrepreneurial spirt lurking, waiting to escape and make their mark on the world. Having an entrepreneurial culture and ethos is vital for both personal and economic success and in this elective we explore a number of issues central to understanding entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial behavior. The elective explores what are the key success factors required of successful entrepreneurs, the roles of creativity and creative thinking, managing the small firm, managing its growth and the role of the entrepreneur as a leader. From a process driven perspective, the elective will proceed to explore how opportunities are identified and then capitalized on. We will discuss and examine the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs in a mix of businesses in both for and not-for-profit environments and experience their life-views first hand as they share their stories, both the good and the bad.
