Kilgore College is offering two new courses, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (BUSG 1307) and Small Business Management (BUSG 2309).
These two courses are for students seeking business-related degrees and certificates at KC.
The two new courses are part of two certificate courses (Culinary and Business Administration) and two Associate of Applied Science courses (Culinary and Business Administration, Entrepreneurship and Real Estate).
KC reserves multiple spots on each course for community members that can be completed as a Continuing Education (CE) course rather than college credit.
The only difference is that CE students get a certificate of course completion, and the students who take a loan get college credits that are accepted at KC and many other colleges and universities in Texas.
