The first course offered online is MCE’s flagship program First Steps, which is currently offered to the general public but only in a traditional classroom setting in Salisbury, Maryland offered about ten times a year. While not designed to replace traditional in-person programs, MCE-Online enables MCE to provide basic entrepreneurship information and training to hundreds more individuals considering opening a business. The course is available to anyone interested, and aspiring entrepreneurs can self-register. Following the First Steps course, participants can register to receive assistance through the consulting portal for assistance in building a business plan and obtaining financing. Finally, MCE-Online will accommodate webinars on the subjects of bookkeeping and social media marketing which are its most popular training programs for existing businesses.
