Lavin Entrepreneur Courses

Courses designed for students to gain experiential skills

The four one unit courses that Lavin Entrepreneurs will be apart of have been designed to incorporate the experiential skills in which students will be able to learn from these experiences. These course are designed more for students to learn rather than be graded on an academic standpoint. Students will be able to develop both soft and hard skills upon the completion of these classes.

BA311: Students will be introduced to entrepreneurship as a potential path for future career development. Entrepreneurship is about creating and building something of value. In this course, students will begin their journey of developing their entrepreneurial competencies and professional networks. Additionally, students will be introduced to the basics of ideation, opportunity recognition and business model development.

BA312: In the course, students will continue building their entrepreneurial competencies and mindsets. The class emphasizes the utilization of entrepreneurship frameworks for business opportunity assessment. Ideation and feasibility analysis techniques in ventures, and how to interact and negotiate with strategic partners will also be highlighted.

BA411: In the course, students will focus on developing an idea for launching a new business venture. Throughout the course, students will engage in significant customer development activities that are designed to test assumptions based on market feedback. Using Lean Startup principles, students will learn to make pivots when appropriate, leading to multiple iterations from their original business model canvas.

BA412: In the course, we will focus on company creation activities. Building upon the “iterated” business model canvas produced at the end of BA 411, students will be exposed to the types of challenges, issues and decisions that must be made while formulating their launch plan. By the end of this course, students will develop and present an investor pitch of their proposed new business venture.
