About this course
The small business sector is one of the fastest growing in the nation’s economy. With an ever-increasing number of adults today self-employed, many residents in Johnson County either work for a small business or plan to start their own. JCCC’s entrepreneurship program can help prospective entrepreneurs launch new ventures or, if you are an entrepreneur who already has your business established, you can strengthen your managerial and business skills to grow your business.
You will learn the fundamentals of starting and operating your own business. The program includes basic business skills as well as specific courses in starting and managing an entrepreneurial business. Course work covers evaluating a business opportunity, preparing a business plan, legal issues for small business, planning advertising and sales promotions, marketing a product or service, developing an accounting system and financial management for the entrepreneurial company.
You also will complete two internships in a small business. You can apply what you learn in the classroom to your job and take your work experiences back to the classroom for analysis.
