Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship & BTE Immersion
As Business, Technology, and Entrepreneurship students begin their journey at NYU Stern, this course will immerse students into the world of entrepreneurship and technology through three interrelated modules.
The first module (Entrepreneurial Mindset) will help students distinguish the myths and realities of entrepreneurship, introduce them to evidenced based approaches to navigating uncertain and ambiguous problems, and practice approaches to starting new opportunities. The second module (Design Thinking) is woven throughout the semester and will help students gain a user centered perspective to entrepreneurship, will place emphasis on problem finding, and develop their capacity for iterative learning through cycles of building and receiving feedback.
