IENT is scheduled to meet weekly during the winter 2014 term on Tuesdays or Wednesdays (TBA) from 4:45 pm - 6:45 pm at Tuck School (Georgiopoulos Classroom in Raether Hall). While auditors are not required to participate in class, readings, or assignments, attendance for Hanover auditors is mandatory.
Who can audit IENT?
IENT is open to anyone eligible for a dartmouth.edu, hitchcock.org or dartmouth.alum.org email address, thereby including any student, faculty or staff member of the College, DHMC, the Mary Hitchcock Hospital, or any alumni of the schools at no charge. Tuck, MALs, DMS, The Dartmouth Institute, and Thayer students are eligible to earn credit for this course.
Approximately 50-75 audit seats are expected to be available for the winter 2013 term. The exact number of audit seats available will be determined by December 19th, after for credit students have enrolled in this course. To accommodate as many audit requests as possible, we have reserved a second classroom across the hall from Georgiopoulos, and we expect most auditors will be seated in this overflow room.
This course is typically oversubscribed and often a wait list is needed, hence auditors are required to attend 8 out of the 9 class sessions. Note, if necessary, priority will be given to juniors and seniors.
What does IENT cover?
IENT addresses fundamentals in major areas of conceptualizing and launching a successful new business. Students will be exposed to the startup process in detail. The course will combine lectures, visiting speakers, workshop sessions, and readings. Throughout the term, for-credit students will develop an executive summary of a business idea and a PowerPoint presentation which they will present, as part of a team, to a panel of entrepreneurs and potential investors at the conclusion of the course on March 5th. During this final class session, auditors will sit in on final team presentations to see first-hand how students have taken what they've learned and executed.
An auditor’s role is to observe and be non-obstructive. Auditors are required to attend 8 out of the 9 class sessions. While auditors are NOT required to participate in assignments or project team work, if an auditor would like to participate, he/she can.
