Whether you’re currently operating a start-up, or looking to get your business up and running, learn the strategies you need to take your business to the next level in the Small Business Entrepreneurship associate degree at Moraine Park Technical College.

About the Program

Being an entrepreneur takes courage and creativity. It takes a commitment to learning, the courage to try new things, permission to fail, and the determination to get back up and brush yourself off when you do. But mostly it simply requires the passion to keep pushing forward to achieve your dream.

The entrepreneurship degree at Moraine Park will help you do just that and is designed to help entrepreneurs explore all aspects of small business start-up and operation. 

The Small Business/Entrepreneurship program courses are offered in an accelerated format, with each eight-week class meeting weekly on Fridays for four hours. Online options are also available.

What You’ll Learn

The entrepreneurship courses provide new and current entrepreneurs with hands-on training in business planning, financing, marketing, customer service, financial management and business communications. Students will gain experience pitching their innovative ideas. Students also learn how to allocate resources to achieve organizational goals and manage employees with diverse skillsets.
