The Business Management Entrepreneurship program provides aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners with the fundamental business knowledge and skills to create, organize, and manage a new business venture that is viable.
Statistics show that a majority of small businesses fail in the first year of operation primarily because of ineffective management and undercapitalization. Small businesses are critical to the economic survival of Harford County and the State of Maryland at large. According to the 2016 Kauffman Foundation report, Entrepreneurship: The Key to a New Era of American Growth and Opportunity, “entrepreneurism will be the primary source of new job creation.”
