Management 451

Widener SBDC: Bringing Experiences to the Classroom

Throughout the Management 451 course, class discussions and research projects examine key areas of concern through an interdisciplinary framework of managerial, economic, and social values. A key aspect of the course is the preparation of a strategic business plan for a local business or non-profit organization recommended by the Small Business Development Center.

The Widener Small Business Development Center helps individuals start and grow their small businesses. Its proximity to Widener’s campus allows for Widener students – both graduate and undergraduate – to help clients with real-world business problems. The SBDC takes on student workers and even partners with upper level management courses to allow students to work with clients to put their businesses on a trajectory for success.

Through the cooperation of Widener University and its SBDC, students are able to engage in real world, hands on learning opportunities.  As an additional benefit, small business owners from the local community get access to high level research and analysis under the guidance of experienced faculty advisors to help set the strategic direction for their business.

If you are a business owner in the Chester and Delaware County region and are interested in participating in the Management 451 experience, complete the form below to express your interest.  A representative from the SBDC will be in contact to discuss the opportunity in more detail.
