Business enterprise class reinforces SIFE efforts

by Kalamalama staff

There’s a new course at HPU for members of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and other undergraduate or graduate student entrepreneurs interested in exploring or establishing business opportunities. Exploring Enterprises is a three-credit class listed as MGMT 3802 for undergraduates, 6806 for graduates, is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:40 to 5 p.m.

“The class is a more structured approach than SIFE to learning about business enterprises,” said Susan Fox-Wolfgramm, an associate professor of management at HPU and one of SIFE’s advisors.

“The SIFE Club is oriented more to developing and implementing projects and to making presentations on these in competition with other SIFE teams locally, nationally, and, we hope, internationally.”

Fox-Wolfgramm explained that students who enroll in the class are also automatically enrolled in SIFE. “This makes them eligible to participate in the competitions,” she added, explaining that the spring course will offer credit for academic and project presentations.

“ The course will introduce students to entrepreneurial studies and will be an opportunity for them to become involved in community development,” Fox-Wolfgramm said.

Prerequisites for the course include: one semester attendance at HPU and consent of the instructor.

The instructor listed for the spring 2004 courses offering is Ken Scholland, associate professor of economics and a SIFE advisor. Other SIFE advisors include communication instructor Fran Lowell and adjunct instructor Carol Jaros. For more information call 544-9349.
