Designed for high school students who may or may not be interested in pursuing business as a major or minor, the curriculum for the first half of the course includes a foundational view of business, creative problem solving, experiential learning, professional communications, career strategies and the creation of a professional development plan. For the second half of the course, students choose from one of two concentration options. The entrepreneurship concentration curriculum includes real-world examples of founding, operating and exiting a startup, how to think like an entrepreneur, and potential career paths. The sports business concentration provides an overview of the major industry aspects, including revenues, collective bargaining, media rights, sponsorships and endorsements.
