Experiential Learning

Business Starts When Classes Begin

Imagine creating a business plan, pitching your ideas to executives, and winning a cash prize to launch and run your own successful business. Now imagine doing that your sophomore of college. The Real Business Experience class is for all students in the Lacy School of Business, and teaches them how to take educated-risks, market themselves, finance a project, and manage a business—not just from a textbook, but by actually doing it.

Students in Butler’s Lacy School of Business don’t wait for a career to start. They graduate with four years of experience.
