Entrepreneurship & Society Block

The purpose of this highly interactive and collaborative course is to help you build a solid entrepreneurial foundation. We take a conceptual look at entrepreneurship as a phenomenon, i.e. investigate entrepreneurship from a theoretical and historical perspective, learn what is, why it exists, and how it has shaped evolution of society. We analyze the processes and behaviors of innovative entrepreneurs like Warby Parker and Tesla and how they have generated unique solutions to problems facing society. We help you create your entrepreneurial opportunities through leveraging your personal interests, skills, and social network.

Your BlockU experience is designed to help you be successful taking 15 credit hours per semester — which will help you finish your degree sooner! In many cases, participating in two consecutive BlockU semesters will clear your General Education requirements. You will be enrolled in a small learning community course and two additional required courses. These courses are taught by exceptional faculty who will help you integrate your learning experiences. You will have access to peer mentors, a dedicated advisor, a dedicated librarian, and a student success advocate.
