The world was dealt a serious blow with the Covid-19 pandemic. During the 2020 time of writing Entrepreneurs, Et al, and recovery was just getting started. Different regions were affected differently and the level of resources to promote entrepreneurship also varies by region. Jobs and financial resources became alarmingly scarce.
Working from home, being self-employment and undertaking entrepreneurial endeavors quickly became the new business norm as many people had no choice except to go to work for themselves.
With major corporations and government entities outsourcing much of their work to avoid workplace exposure to the coronavirus. Initially, only essential workers were retained while many people, were left unemployed, laid off, or had their jobs suspended. The lucky ones were able to work from home.
As a result, entrepreneurialism became the new standard for business in the United States and around the world. Many entrepreneurs had studied business science in undergraduate or graduate coursework, and were able to adapt. However, many found themselves unprepared to start or manage their own business, and going back to school was just not an option. This series of courses is designed for those who want to improve their business skills but lack the resources to go back to school.
There are certain disciplines in business that every entrepreneur needs to be familiar with, but it is not necessary to learn them in a traditional academic setting. Business disciplines are typically taught in classrooms with a live instructor and typically include basic business scholastic selections such as entrepreneurship, management strategies, insurance, finance, sales, marketing, human resources, and accounting principles. However, the information provided in these disciplines is generic. No one university has a monopoly on standard business knowledge. As a matter of fact, most of the business curriculum has become standardized so that transferring students have equivalent knowledge about the standard curriculum.
Because this information is considered standard knowledge, it can be taught through either traditional classroom study or self-study. Not every student has the self-discipline to achieve a high level of understanding of a subject matter. Not every university student has the ability to even pass their classes. Education is very individual. People learn at different levels. Some people are capable of learning with minimal assistance by just listening, reading along, and doing independent studying on areas they don’t initially grasp.
Quite often a discipline requires understanding fundamental principles. If those principles are not understood from the beginning, the whole study thereafter may be flawed by a lack of understanding of core principles. All too often, the speed of the class does not allow students to go back and relearn what they missed. Some students excel while others are left behind. The courses often flow at the speed of the top learners. This deprives other students of an opportunity to matriculate and achieve scholastic successes.
Not everyone needs a traditional classroom setting to learn in and some are just not cut out for university education. However, many people are capable of learning independently at their own pace.
If one plans to start their own business, they don’t necessarily need an actual diploma, they need the knowledge. The curriculum contained herein is designed to give a broad knowledge of the functional areas of how businesses are structured, practical managerial skills, communication skills, and business decision-making capability.
When it comes to business, there is no one right way to do anything. There are as many different approaches as there are different opportunities. The goal of every business student is to synthesize the information and extrapolate from that information that is necessary to achieve their end business goal.
