7 College Courses Entrepreneurs Wish They'd Taken

7 College Courses Entrepreneurs Wish They'd Taken

As the wild ride known as 2020 winds down, the end of one year and the start of a new one is always good time to take a critical look at your business – and yourself. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal looked into what college courses entrepreneurs wish they had taken. As the headline noted, “Founders often find themselves without crucial skills. These classes would have been a big help.” So what did the WSJ learn from asking business owners what classes, and why? (Big thanks to Kelly K. Spors for the reporting!) 

Each of the 7 wishes is accompanied by an interview with an entrepreneur explaining why they wished they’d taken the specific course they mentioned. Click here for more details and the full article.

1) Deal making
2) Managerial psychology
3) Consumer psychology
4) Coding
5) Creative writing
6) Communications
7) Financial management
8) None

(Yes, Spors writes, some entrepreneurs don’t think any course would have prepared them for running their business.)
