Small businesses are one of the most important drivers of our economic growth
Rockford, Ill. (Vocus) January 29, 2009
Corporations are now looking to college campuses for new business ideas and products. According to Quintessential Careers' website (http://www.quintcareers.com), entrepreneurship that begins in college is a growing concept, and industries are taking notice.
Rasmussen College recently launched its new Business Management Associate's Degree Program with a Specialization in Entrepreneurship in January to mentor and develop students with an entrepreneurial spirit.
"Small businesses are one of the most important drivers of our economic growth," Kathy Heldman, director of the school of business at Rasmussen College said. "The prospects are very bright for individuals who want to chart their own success and build a career as an entrepreneur or small business owner."
Many successful CEOs began their companies in the college environment. Some of the most well-known are Bill Gates, Michael Dell, and Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, according to Quintessential Careers.
The new Entrepreneurship Specialization at Rasmussen College teaches students how to be innovators by giving them the skills to combine ideas, resources and customers to create a new business or a marketplace. Students will learn the major concepts in management, human resources, marketing, accounting, business ethics and customer service, while developing the necessary problem-solving and decision-making skills needed to be successful.
"Rasmussen's Business Management Associates degree with a specialization in Entrepreneurship gives our students the knowledge and real-world skills they need to take advantage of this opportunity and start their own businesses," said Heldman.
The Associate's degree in Business Management with a Specialization in Entrepreneurship is part of the School of Business at Rasmussen College. The program can be taken completely online, or is offered at all 15 Rasmussen College campuses.
