This is a great resource everyone should know about:
The Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP) Entrepreneurship Corner is a free online archive of entrepreneurship resources for teaching and learning.

The site has been developed by a dynamic team of educators, entrepreneurs, engineers, and designers at the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP). The project has been financially supported by Stanford University and a number of generous sponsors. Other collaborators in its creation include the Stanford Center for Professional Development and Stanford Video.

I am registered for six classes, definitely on the “more-than-average amount of coursework” side of the workload spectrum. Corporate Financial Reporting, Corporate Restructuring, Interpersonal Negotiations, B2B Marketing, Brand Strategy, and finally, Developing Star Performers. All interesting classes, and unfortunately, none of them will be offered again before I graduate in May. I need to take a few marketing electives before I graduate, and I definitely want to keep working on my accounting and financial analysis before I graduate, so must keep the finance classes too. No way I’m dropping interpersonal negotiations, and the last class is a new relatively class based on cutting-edge research findings.
