If there is one subject that you want to learn hands-on, it’s Entrepreneurship. Lecturer Chamille Weddington headed up an Entrepreneurship class this past fall that ended with a successful partnership with PlayChic and the Chicago Toy and Game Group. The class gladly agreed that there is simply no better way to learn about the inner workings of starting a business than to do it yourself.
After choosing the game industry, the students designed and developed board games that went through the entire professional production process creating a ready to be sold product. The team developed skills in leadership, creativity, and possibly the most important skill of flexibility, learning to take each challenge as it came.
This incredible experience took the information of starting a business right off the page and right into practical, everyday life. It wasn’t simply a class it was real world experience.
