Heald’s Entrepreneurship Program Supports Need For Small Business Growth


America’s small businesses are proving their resiliency as they continue to drive economic growth and job creation, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Heald College is answering the call with its latest program, an associate degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in entrepreneurship. Heald is now enrolling students for this new program at all campuses (except Modesto).

“The attraction of this Entrepreneurship program is that nearly anyone interested in starting a business can learn the fundamentals to succeed,” says President and Chief Executive Officer Nolan Miura of Heald College. “If you pair Heald’s entrepreneurship degree with resourceful thinking and a clear vision, you have the tools to live the ’American Dream’ of owning a small business.”

In addition to the Business Administration courses, students will also take courses in the Entrepreneurship program, including marketing and sales, finance for entrepreneurs, and the analysis and evaluation of real business cases by successful and not-so-successful entrepreneurs. Additionally, students will learn how to prepare a comprehensive business plan for starting their own business. The sample business plan will be assigned during the beginning of the program and will be expanded throughout the program into the final project, where students will present the plan to a group of local entrepreneurs.

Graduates of the program will be qualified to handle a diverse array of responsibilities in an established business as an office manager, management trainee, work in a franchise as a supervisor or manager, or learn how to start a business.
