Entrepreneurial Focus

Coming to Wharton, I knew I wanted to focus on entrepreneurship. Because I had an undergraduate degree in business, I waived some core classes. This freed up my schedule for essential electives, such as MGMT 801, the prerequisite for all entrepreneurship courses. The class helped me flesh out a business idea that I conceived before Wharton. In the spring semester, I further refined my business plan in MGMT 806 and coupled it with MKTG 730, since my idea involved e-commerce in the Brazilian market. All my flexible core choices also centered around entrepreneurship, including OPIM 614, MGMT 612 and WHCP 615.
