BUSI 6610 - Small Enterprise & Regional Development

Next offering: TBD
Prerequisites: none

In this course we will examine community-informed, place-based economic develpoment. In particular, we will look at the role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the perspective of regional Opportunity Management (OM) systems. We will study how regional development approaches impact SMEs as well as the role of SMEs play in these approaches. Our focus will be primarily on the exploitation of opportunities emerging from the develpoment, retention/stabilization, growth, and attraction of small and medium-sized enterprises. We will develop a strong theoretical understanding of key community economic develpoment (CED) concepts and, where possible, we will demonstrate the application of these concepts via local examples.
