Regardless of a professor’s teaching style, learning in a college classroom can often be traditional. Lectures followed by tests and quizzes.
That will not be the case in the new CUE (Cedarville University Entrepreneurs) School within the Robert W. Plaster School of Business at Cedarville University.
Focused on helping people build their brands and become entrepreneurs, Dr. Kary Oberbrunner, Berry chair of entrepreneurship at Cedarville University, will merge his high-level energy teaching style with entrepreneurial competency that will help students build their brands and become entrepreneurs who make a difference in life.
The CUE School includes four entrepreneurial courses that are free of charge and open to the public. Each course will be held in the Apple Technology Resource Center at Cedarville University (Room 107) as well as live-streamed on Cedarville’s Facebook and YouTube platforms. The first class begins Friday, Oct. 13, with additional sessions on the following Fridays, Nov. 10, Nov. 17 and Dec. 1.
“My goal for the CUE School is to equip and mobilize all students to become entrepreneurs who have a kingdom impact through business,” said Oberbrunner.
The CUE School is a four-week class model where individuals will learn how to create a value proposition statement, identify a customer avatar, write a business manifesto and optimize social media. By the final workshop, students will be able to publish their own e-book from their business manifesto and become an Amazon author.
These four skills will give entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs a good basis for how to start their own businesses and work toward their goals intentionally. It also allows them to have clarity, confidence and competence in their business ventures.
