Business Admin (BUSAD)

BUSAD 522 New Ventures 2 (3) Examines the financial and legal issues that are critical in the formation, development, and management of new ventures.

BUSAD 522 New Ventures 2 (3)

The focus of the course is on the methods of funding and cash flow management for the new enterprise, as well as the underlying legal issues that impact new ventures.

Evaluation will be on case study analyses, exams, and a written and oral report on the legal and financial aspects of new venture.

All students in the MBA program are required to take an introductory finance course. This course builds on that foundation and introduces the various legal issues that are critical to new venture development. Designed especially for students taking the New Ventures and Entrepreneurial Studies option within the MBA program. This course builds on the work in Entrepreneurship or New Ventures 1, which are required for all New Ventures majors.

This will be an elective course for students taking the New Ventures option in the MBA program. Students in the other options would not usually take this course. However, they could take it as an elective, since it has little overlap with the required courses in the business option. It would also be an elective for students in the MSIS (Info Science) program who have an entrepreneurial orientation.
