Small Business Management Fastrack Entrepreneur offers owners and managers of small businesses practical and timely information to achieve success. You’ll learn principles and practices pertaining to human resources, accounting, marketing and management that will be used every day in your small business.

Did you know… You can improve the odds that your startup will survive that tough first year following 3 key steps: • Talk to Customers: Doing market research at the start can help you avoid so many mistakes. You’ll have the right offer, at the right price, in the right market. • Choose your location carefully: Whether it’s a great website URL that’s easy to remember or a retail location with enough foot traffic, make sure your business is where it needs to be. • Keep expenses down: Look for every possible way to save. This will allow you to keep going longer, hopefully until revenue starts to cover your initial investment. Hire interns, trade services, postpone purchases or pick up a broom and do it yourself.

Small Business Classes in 3 & 4-week Formats • Scheduled to meet the needs of busy entrepreneurs, these accelerated business classes offer information and insight as well as the opportunity to network. • One-credit classes meet on-campus one night per week from 6:30 - 9:15PM for three weeks.
