Andrew J. Sherman and Universities at Shady Grove’s Committee on Collaboration, Interprofessional and Interdisciplinary Education Strategies (CIPES) have teamed up to offer an innovative course dedicated to helping students gain the skills necessary to launch and manage their own business. Students will be able to write a business plan, be privy to the winning strategies of successful companies, and possess an understanding of the entrepreneurial process.
Andrew J. Sherman is an attorney at Jones Day Partners in Washington, D.C. and the author of 17 books on business strategies. He has also served as a guest commentator on CNN, NPR and CBS News Radio.
Sherman says his role as an educator is most important. “When I am helping people learn is when I am most content,” Sherman said of his decades with the Smith school, 12 years at USG and guest lectures appearances across fifty countries in the last 20 years. “I am truly excited to launch this course, create an original, effective learning environment, and have a lot of fun doing it.”
This course offering is right on time as entrepreneurship education is in high-demand. “Many graduates are discovering that continuing to develop a business idea they had as a student, or trying their hand in a new venture, is a viable means of income – and one that can be achieved at a lower cost than ever before,” said Sherman.
