WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Exponent) - Entrepreneurs who want to experience the thrill of "Shark Tank" and the pressure of "The Apprentice" should consider a new Krannert class.
The School of Management will offer both undergraduate and graduate students a new course this fall, geared to prepare entrepreneurial students to start a business. Students from any major can take the course, but they must have a serious desire to start their own business in the future.
Lean LaunchPad, a hands-on course focused on learning outside the classroom, gives students a chance to develop a product idea and experimentally test whether it will work in the real world. Instead of a lecture, the weekly three-hour class consists of student presentations on what they have done throughout the week. A mentoring group of experienced entrepreneurs, composed of Purdue alumni and other leading businesspeople, critiques students' progress.
