Entrepreneurs have brought the United States into being and they are the foundation of our future. Since small business ownership represents over 85% of our country’s businesses, free-enterprise education should be considered a “basic skill”. In trying to determine and reach their career goals in this dynamic American economy, students need to take personal responsibility to obtain the skills, knowledge, constructive attitudes and experiences that will enable them to function as creative, self-confident members of the workforce. This course addresses these personal qualities and stresses the lifelong learning process. It will teach them the basic concepts of business ownership and management needed to be a successful entrepreneur. There are no prerequisites for this course, however, Marketing Education is strongly suggested.
