When you are starting out, you may want to overanalyze everything but being overly deliberate may paint you into some corners. You are going to make mistakes, but that is how you learn and can better define your business.

Investing in Real-World Experience

While Concordia is free of the crowded, intense atmosphere of the New York Stock Exchange, the Offutt School’s new finance lab offers students in the finance program the opportunity to get hands-on training in the world of stock trading.

The Offutt School of Business commits itself to giving students hands-on training instead of just classroom learning. In one of my marketing classes, I got to work with a real client. Our finance lab gives students a chance to work with real trading systems. In my entrepreneurial management class, our team got to simulate the process of starting up a company. We also applied a lot of case studies from real companies in our classes.
