Are you a budding entrepreneur? Anne Arundel Community College can help you on your way with new degree and certificate programs in Entrepreneurship.
Education is more important than ever to those starting or struggling with a new business because a huge influx of new customers is on the horizon for Anne Arundel County and the surrounding region due to the federal Base Realignment and Closure decision reassigning jobs to Fort George G. Meade.
The Maryland Higher Education Commission has approved AACC's Entrepreneurial Studies Institute's 18-credit certificate and a 60-credit degree in Entrepreneurship. These courses of study are designed to meet needs of employers and strong community interest in training in entrepreneurial thinking, new venture planning and mastery of skills and knowledge necessary for business success.
The institute provides individuals with the chance to discover and develop their talents, energy and interests, to pursue their unique potentials and achieve an intellectually, culturally and economically satisfying relationship with society. In addition to courses and programs, ESI also has a small business resource lab and student business incubator known on campus as the Hatchery.
Get started this summer or fall with classes such as "Entrepreneurship 1: New Venture Planning" (BPA 230), "Business and its Environment" (BPA 111) "Small Business Management" and "Entrepreneurship: Legal Issues for Small Business" (BPA 250). Registration is under way.
Those enrolled can take advantage of a seamless transfer program with the University of Baltimore and articulation agreements with other universities and colleges. For information, visit the Entrepreneurial Institute Web site or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
