Title:Virtual Enterprise (Create Your Own Company)
Abstract:Entrepreneurship spirit and teamwork ability are critical in order to be competitive in all business careers. Design a virtual company to offer a new service and/or produce a new product to the potential customers, as well as make scientific business decisions. Traditional teaching programs often neglect to develop students’ creativity and social identities. With the shift in the available jobs moving beyond manufacturing to service, non-profit organizations, and other non-academic settings, understanding the skills necessary to compete and succeed in these settings is critical. You need to become familiar with fundamental knowledge of design of goods and services, product development and marketing concept in an enterprise.
