ENTR 400 - Managing and Scaling-Up Operations for Startups

Prerequisites, ENTR 310 , MGSC 346 . Once product-market is confirmed, operations management must be effective and efficient for ventures to scale. The aim of operations management is to create the highest level of efficiency possible, considering the many assets available, and limitations inherent to a new operation. The course will examine new ventures that have achieved at least one round of institutional financing or product-market fit, through a variety of functional lenses, including product management, sales and marketing, business development, and engineering and technology. This course is foundational for students pursuing careers in entrepreneurship, consulting, and management. The course will approach the challenge of scaling operations and operations strategy by taking a holistic view of all aspects of a business and will focus on decisions and challenges that many firms face as they try to scale their operations. Letter grade. (Offered every year.) 3 credits
