Offered - Fall, Spring
Course number - MB-P493
This practicum course offers senior-level students an opportunity to apply their accumulated business knowledge in a problem-solving, laboratory environment. A continuation of the learning experiences gained in MB-340, the class places students into mentoring relationships with Berklee alumni, as well as other members of the Berklee community, who may have an operating business or who desire to launch a new business venture. Students will undertake, as class projects, the assistance of these hopeful entrepreneurs, in all aspects of starting and/or improving their enterprises. Appropriate business settings will be identified and chosen utilizing a simple proposal submission and screening process. Class sessions, which may include on-site visitations, will focus on developing options and action plans that lead to problem-solving areas students will encounter in business environments.
