COURSE SUMMARY (GRADE : 10 - 13)

Entrepreneurship starts to prepare future small business owners to run their own businesses according to the principles of business. It also allows students to experience the entrepreneurial spirit. Students learn how to develop a business idea and write a business plan to promote that idea. Future business people must understand economics, financial statements, marketing and selling techniques, investing, business structures, legal issues, banking, technology and taxation. Entrepreneurship teaches students how to use all of these business principles in order to develop a successful business and kindle an entrepreneurial spirit that will help students follow their dreams and reach their goals.
