Loyola University’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Development has launched a brand new course to help local entrepreneurs grow their businesses. The Loyola Entrepreneur Master Class is a five-part series will take place throughout the summer.
The series includes topics such as entrepreneurial marketing, sales, startup funding, and accounting.
Loyola launched the Master Class to provide flexibility in class times for the participating entrepreneurs who also need time to run their businesses. According to Kate Yoo McCrery, Interim Director of Loyola’s Center for Entrepreneurship, the class “has the potential to help the entrepreneurial ecosystem in New Orleans become stronger and better able to support entrepreneurs who are past the back-of-the-napkin stage.”
“Our emphasis on real-world experience ensures that those in the Entrepreneurial minor, or MBA specialization, spend more time learning the skills needed to create a successful venture than they do sitting behind a desk,” shared Loyola.
