has long been a major part of the United States’ economic
structure. During downturns as well as periods of economic
growth, entrepreneurship has typically flourished. The situation
is no different today. Recent reports have indicated that
hundreds of thousands of jobs in various sectors such as information
systems and finance are going to be lost over the next two
to three years to offshore companies, creating a wealth of
new business opportunities for would-be entrepreneurs.
In order to meet the needs
of individuals who desire to start their own companies, Dallas
Baptist University offers a concentration in Entrepreneurship
in its MBA program.
The concentration consists
of four courses which include New Business Creation, Accounting
and Financial Planning for Entrepreneurs, Marketing and New
Product Development for Entrepreneurs, and Strategy and Management
of Growing Businesses.
In the capstone course for
the concentration, students will actually work with the owner(s)
of entrepreneurial companies helping to develop then implement
plans and procedures for the business.
Upon obtaining the degree,
the student will have an actual business plan, a marketing
plan, an operations manual, and a plan for raising capital,
all developed with the assistance of highly qualified instructors.
To satisfy minimum degree requirements, all single concentrations require a minimum of 36 credit hours, and dual concentrations require 48 credit hours. Students are responsible for not repeating courses waived, transferred, or previously taken.
