Kaua‘i Community College will offer a revamped Entrepreneurship Training Series beginning Sept. 3.
The series is based on master’s of business administration, or MBA, training systems adopted by colleges and universities across America. It teaches the principles and practices employed by successful leaders in all fields of business.
Instructor Glenn Hontz, who has taught business at the University of Hawai‘i, Manoa as well as several Mainland universities, said the program provides the basic tools essential for success in today’s challenging economic environment.
The program provides training on how to plan and manage the growth of a business into a profitable and vibrant enterprise. Hontz says successful businesses operate in harmony, both internally with their employees and externally with their market. To achieve this kind of balance, he says, requires insightful and compassionate leadership, employee training and awareness of market trends and customer preferences.
The program recently underwent a thorough revision. The tuition has been reduced to $200 per semester, and the content has been consolidated into three modules. Each module is a complete unit of study that progresses from introductory data to advanced concepts.
The fall semester module focuses on planning and developing the business enterprise. The spring module deals with management and growth. The summer module focuses on creative financing via grants, loans and fundraising.
Fall classes will be Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
