About This Course

Sincerely welcome the students of the entrepreneurship course. Allow me to briefly summarize the purpose of the course, the motivation and what knowledge and skills can be acquired by it. The dominant participants of every economy are the companies and enterprises. They produce those goods that we buy and they also provide those services that we use in our everyday life. The majority of people work for companies and enterprises, and the income that they earn through their work, provide the earn of living for them and their families. In addition to this, the companies are those institutions where people can unfold their knowledge, talent and creativity and where they can create new things that can be the driving forces of economical and technological development. Therefore we all get in touch with companies and enterprises, either as an entrepreneur, as an employee or as a consumer. That’s why it is important to understand the basic principles of operation of enterprises.

During the course, the students will learn about the types of enterprises, the possible legal forms of enterprises and the characteristics of certain legal forms. The curriculum covers the development trends of the enterprises, so at the end of the course the students will be aware the meaning of franchise, start-up, spin-off, off-shore enterprises and also with the meaning of outsourcing and the horizontal and vertical strategic alliances. I consider important to develop the students’ overview of the management processes, and systematise the assets and sources of the enterprise, and to clarify the difference between the definition of cost and expense. With the interpretation the cost by groups the participants of the course will be able to estimate some profit categories and to determine the break-even point. Will be also described the various functional subareas of enterprises, such as marketing, human resource, finance, accounting and controlling. A separate chapter deals with the basic of tax issues, the most important taxes. The curriculum help to make a company’s business plan, shows the structure of a business plan, highlight the criteria of a good business plan, and the typical mistakes. Finally, the students will learn about some of the basic methods of strategic planning. For this course I wish you a lot of success and good learning!
