New IB Summer Course Offering – Small Business Development

Typically offered only in the fall and spring semesters, for the first time this summer GEB 4104, Small Business Development is being offered in the summer “C” session that begins on May 13, 2019 and ends on August 2, 2019. 

Course Content

For those students who do not need a for-credit internship and/or students who want to know how to start their own business from start to finish, this is a 3 credit Integrated Business elective that will show you every step you need to take to learn how to plan, open and manage a small business. Topics include franchising, family businesses, buying a business, and independent contracting. The course will be taught by Dr. Frank Tamberelli (Dr. T.) who spent several years as the director of a small business center in North Carolina and helped many prospective business owners to open and grow their own small business.

All of the meetings will take place in the Integrated Business classroom, BA1-220, and they will begin at 3:00pm and end at 4:50pm.
