The ABP Community Entrepreneurship Course (CEC) is our entrepreneurship- and business start-up-focused offering and has been the most popular ABP option thus far. The CEC focuses on developing participants’ entrepreneurial ideas into fully-fledged business plans. Each component of the business plan (e.g., marketing plan, cash flow statements) is a touchpoint for learning the business concepts behind it through lectures, activities, and homework assignments. At the end of the CEC course, students are expected to use their newly constructed business plans to present their businesses to the class in the style of a funding pitch (think of the show Dragon’s Den).
Students who participate throughout the course and present at the end receive a graduation certificate.
