I would love to know if your University/Business School has mandatory entrepreneurship courses at Bachelor or Master level. Thanks for letting us know. Andreas
Back in 2016 I put together such a list, and posted it to my website eWeb. I haven't updated it since, but the list may be worthwhile as a starting place. If you have any updates, I would be glad to post them. The page is at https://sites.google.com/a/slu.edu/eweb/entrepreneurship-infrastructure/who-requires-entrepreneurship-education.
We revised our business core curriculum at the undergrad level last year. Now, all incoming business students, across all majors, take a class early on, titled BUS 101 | INTRODUCTION TO DRIEHAUS: BUSINESS FUNDAMENTALS AND THE ENTREPRENEURIAL MINDSET https://catalog.depaul.edu/course-descriptions/bus/
We also require all undergrad business students to take ENTSP 310 Entrepreneurship and Innovation which is part of our business core courses.
Hello Andreas,We have both, undergrad, master andMBA compulsory entrepreneurship courses. Tecnológico de Monterrey was pioneer in implement entrepreneurship curriculum like transversal competence for all bachelor degrees (early 90). Now we have different type of courses, for different objectives. From entrepreneurial mindset in the first year of bachelor programs to CVC course for example in our Master in Finance.Happy to share our experiences!Ernesto
At Princeton we offer a minor/certificate in entrepreneurship as we do not have a business school or a business major. To receive the certificate students must take two mandatory classes: "Introduction to Value Creation" and "Creativity, Innovation, and Design" (winner of the AOM ENT DIV 2019 Innovation in Pedagogy Award). Students must also participate in an outside-of-school value creation endeavor and give a presentation comparing and contrasting their real world experience with what they learned in their classes. Student are also required to take 2 out of a list of about 8 relevant classes such as: Entrepreneurial Leadership, High Tech Entrepreneurship, Venture Capital and the Finance of Innovation, Entrepreneurship Policy, The History of Entrepreneurship, Ethnography for Research and Design, Professional Responsibility and Ethics, or an Experiential Hands-on Grow a Startup class.Derek LidowThe Keller CenterPrinceton University
Interesting question, in my view entrepreneurship education should indeed be mandatory for all studies. In the Netherlands this isn't the case yet. Still we work to improve this by creating learning communities and work with challenge based learning. There's made a lot of progress in this field the last decade. The initiative to work on this comes more and more from within the education system itself and from governmental side from the Ministry of Economic Affairs. One of the programmes that I work for O2LAB aims to support this.
