Gogebic Community College

Entrepreneurship
 Associate of Applied Business Degree Program  
Entrepreneurship education at Gogebic Community College is designed to help prepare students for
effective new venture creation and management. Students interested in Entrepreneurship will study
the needs of new and emerging ventures and existing businesses.  Students pursuing Entrepreneurship
are challenged to pursue development of their own business ideas and opportunities and will develop
their own business plan.

Not all students studying Entrepreneurship will establish new ventures immediately upon graduation.  
Therefore, the program is designed with the flexibility entrepreneurs require.  Students will work closely
with their academic advisor to create a customized degree plan to fit their personal needs and the
specific needs of their type of venture.  The course listing below is just one example of possible
combinations of courses.
