My entrepreneurship professor shares a lot of real-life examples to help students understand concepts we learn in the class. Now I know why my professor always mentions Steve Flagg, an alum of the Carlson School of Management. After Flagg graduated from the U of M, he started a little shop in downtown Minneapolis selling hard-to-find bike parts. His unique idea took off and there are now over 50,000 Quality Bike Parts (QBP) dealers in the world. He recently received the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the University of Minnesota. Read the full story here. Success stories like Steve's make me feel confindent about going out into the job market with a degree from the U of M!
