While most people who own and run their own companies will say how rewarding it is, they will also tell you how busy and challenging it can be. Before making any plans, you need to be as prepared as possible for what’s ahead.

We understand the many fears and worries setting up a business can bring up. Do I have enough business knowledge? How will I get customers? What official obligations will I have? How could I raise funding? Will it work? Can I manage the fast paced world of social media?

To help you allay these worries and prepare you for the entrepreneurial world, we’ve compiled this Start Your Own Business course, especially focused on the business areas our students are trained in.
