Students interested in starting their own business can learn the ins and outs of how to get started in the process and how to follow through to be successful through Craven Community College's new Entrepreneurship program. The Entrepreneurship curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and the skills necessary for employment and growth as self-employed business owners.
Coursework includes developing a student's ability to make informed decisions as future business owners. Courses include entrepreneurial concepts learned in innovation and creativity, business funding, and marketing. Additional coursework includes computers and economics.
Students with an interest in art, creative writing, music or welding may also choose up to 6 hours of elective courses within Craven's entrepreneurial program to develop those skills. Basic foreign language acquisition is another optional part of the program students may choose to learn to enable them to operate in the global entrepreneurial economy.
Through these skills, students will have a sound education base in entrepreneurship for lifelong learning. Graduates are prepared to be self-employed and open their own businesses.
