Interactive Media & Entrepreneurship
The “Interactive Media & Entrepreneurship” Discovery Core explores the key elements necessary to create a compelling business proposal around interactive media technologies. We'll begin with exposure to social networking applications, iPhone and smart phone utilities, videoconferencing add-ons, and games. Students will then learn, at an appropriate level of complexity, about all the facets of creating a business, including product/service design and development, marketing, sales, finance, accounting, operations, and human resources. The end result will be a written business case and presentation.
