Position Summary

This is an interest list posting for B 183: Introduction to Entrepreneurship. This course is intended to guide student’s exploration and introspection as they prepare for the next stage in their Life’s Journey. Through case studies, entrepreneur video clips, LDS perspectives, ethical challenges, life-planning, and accountability exercises, students will get clearer about what matters most to them. They’ll gain perspective on how to make decisions, how to learn and grow, and identify long-range goals and next steps. They’ll discover strategies for staying true when they are distracted,discouraged, or simply want to quit. A life in business can be truly gratifying, but only when business success is part of something bigger. It is one thing to write a business plan, but more importantly in this course students will learn how to draft a life plan and begin with the end in mind. This course will help students integrate their dreams, values, and future plans – and undertake the ultimate act of entrepreneurship: building a life of meaning.

Online adjunct faculty mentor students and facilitate teaching and learning. They uphold the mission, values, and standards of BYU-Idaho and the LDS Church. They support the BYU-Idaho Learning Model and participate in an online teaching group.

As teaching opportunities for the course arise, interest list applicants selected for further review will be asked to participate in our interview process (this does not require travel to Rexburg).
