Teaching New Dogs New Tricks: The Rise of Entrepreneurship Education in Graduate Schools of Business. CELCEE Digest.
The rapid rise in entrepreneurship programs and centers has been fueled by unprecedented student demand, and the popularity of entrepreneurship courses is outstripping the supply in programs across the United States. Entrepreneurship education has been criticized as a fad by some, but it appears to have established a firm beachhead in higher education. Entrepreneurial education emphasizes imagination, creativity, and risk-taking, and traditional business programs have come under increased criticism for failing to be relevant to the needs of the changing business environment. Data on the success of entrepreneurial education programs are still very preliminary, but graduate schools continue to build programs and conduct research to foster entrepreneurial education. (SLD)
