Probably my best and favorite course at UF. SUPER EASY AND SUPER FUN. You listen to guest speakers every class who went to UF who talk about their journeys as an entrepreneur and there all pretty cool and funny. Class is great.
SUPER EASY ASSIGNMENTS. Extra credit is fairly easy as well you just have to speak on a discussion page weekly. Exams aren't too bad as long as you watch the lectures.
Prof Kraft is the MAN. Great professor. Runs a great class and is a really great guy. This is class is cake with him as the professor as he makes it very fun.
LISTEN TO ALL LECTURES. There's usually several questions on the exams about the guest speakers and things they say to the class. So pay attention to everything they says especially life and book recommendations. Other than that the class is super easy and very hard to fail.

I really enjoyed this class! Professor Kraft was a really fun teacher, and the course was full of useful content when it comes to becoming an entrepreneur.
The class is comprised primarily of textbook progress checks and exams. As long as you read the textbook and take notes, you'll do really well on every exam. There are four hours of in-person sessions each week. Some of these classes are dedicated to experiential learning exercises that help students apply the entrepreneurial concepts they're learning, but most of them are guest speakers. These speakers are typically UF grads who have become successful entrepreneurs, and though it's a commitment to go, I would recommend it because the speakers were almost always interesting and there would be a Q&A afterward. Guest speakers comprise 10% of test questions, so it's not necessary to know, but guest speaker questions are usually really easy as long as you watched the lecture.
Professor Kraft was really fun! He tries to make the lectures entertaining, and he's very personable. If you're interested in the entrepreneurship department, he's the person who leads it, so it's good to meet him early on.
