Course syllabus for MGMT 55A Students in Free Enterprise

Course description: Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) is a course designed around a not-for-profit organization supported by individuals, foundations, and corporations whose mission is to build collegiate SIFE Teams who teach free enterprise in order to better individuals, communities, and countries. SIFE's purpose is accomplished through the SIFE Team's outreach projects where students and faculty involve the community in the free enterprise system, providing the students with an opportunity to teach others what they have learned.

By accepting the responsibility of teaching others about free enterprise, the Students In Free Enterprise learn a deeper knowledge of how the free enterprise system works. This unique experience provides the SIFE students with better communication skills, creativity, team building, and management skills to become the leaders of the future. SIFE students represent a diversity of men and women of all ethnic backgrounds.
