BeThe Boss
The entrepreneurial component initially launched in December, 2014, and relaunched with new branding in January 2016. offers three free online, non-credit educational resources: “How to Start a Business,” “A Case Study in Energy,” and a microsite with links to supplemental information. The course capstone includes a business plan development tool that will enable students to create a viable business plan. Colleges can decide locally whether successful completion of the course and business plan could be evaluated for PLA credit towards any of their programs. Since the rebranding, more than 400 students have enrolled in the BeTheBoss online entrepreneurship course.
