CONNECTING WITH REAL-WORLD LEADERS

EAGLES ENGAGED IN

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

With the guidance of Dr. SherRhonda Gibbs, students in the

Entrepreneurship program hosted an event to provide a venue for students

to learn more about how to succeed as an entrepreneur. Welcoming

students of all majors who aspire to be entrepreneurs, the event included

creative activities, a “shark tank” challenge, and short presentations by local

entrepreneurs on topics such as startup funding, human resources and

marketing. Additionally, they were provided information on the resources

available to them on campus and were given an opportunity to network

with seasoned entrepreneurs and business owners.

Students enrolled in the New Venture Creation

course also had the opportunity to earn

certificates in ETHICAL

LEADERSHIP, GOOGLE

ANALYTICS and ADVANCED

GOOGLE ANALYTICS.

The event is the first of its kind to be held at Southern Miss and is part

of a class project for students in the New Venture Creation course in the

School of Management.

Over 100 participants!
