Be Prepared to Run Your Business
There’s a lot more to running a business than meets the eye. Small business owners are often the bookkeeper, promoter, decision-maker and problem-solver. As such, small business owners need the skills to analyze and prepare financial statements, measure and record transactions, understand and evaluate business operations, negotiate and apply impromptu speaking, and understand capital management and financial planning.
The Entrepreneurship & Small Business program will help you develop skills to:
- Create a viable business plan for a small business.
- Communicate in writing, conversations and formal presentations.
- Apply basic accounting practices and budgeting appropriate for a small business.
- Make successful business marketing decisions in promotion, distribution and pricing.
- Identify ethical business practices.
