The Constructive Action and Field Experience
A critical part in the development of a student’s Constructive Action is the field placement. In line with unique Purpose-Centered Education offered at MCNY, the students in this degree will be required to apply what they have learned in the classrooms with their experiences in real-world situations, companies and/or organizations. As such, the students must identify an appropriate entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial venture and specific segments of their proposed venture for their Constructive Actions (CA). In the three CAs of the proposed curriculum, students will acquire basic research techniques and methodologies necessary to explore and analyze trends and needs, relate those needs to their respective proposed professional venture, develop a comprehensive strategic plan, and finally set in motion their respective entrepreneurial plans by identifying sources of financing and evaluating their success and failures.
