Students in Ron Myszkowski’s entrepreneurship class at the Minnesota School of Business-Plymouth recently finished their quarter by presenting a feasibility plan for a new mobile
application for Globe Education Network.
The students, who were assisted by business and accounting program chair Myszkowski and technical advisor Doug Denny, owner of Double D Copywriting in Wayzata, presented their findings and recommendations on the proposed application to a group of campus and Globe Education Network leaders.
“It was a great real world project,” student Chad Jakel said. “It was a much better scenario than working on a theoretical business on paper.”
The group, which included Jakel, Ryan Anderson, John Jordan and Lisa Sauer, started by surveying students and staff on mobile phone ownership, habits and uses for the app. Further research was conducted on other higher education institution’s applications.
After identifying key needs and demands from smart phone users at the Plymouth campus, it was determined that the main function of the application should alert students to changes to their email, campus calendar, grades, class discussions, and campus
The study will be continued by the winter quarter entrepreneurship class at MSB-Plymouth for further refinement and advancement. Further action proposed by the current class included more research, refinement of user scenarios, allocation of necessary resources, development and design.
