A Financial Technology Entrepreneurship Program for Computer Science Students
Lawler, James P.; Joseph, Anthony
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n1 p53-59 Apr 2011
Education in entrepreneurship is becoming a critical area of curricula for computer science students. Few schools of computer science have a concentration in entrepreneurship in the computing curricula. The paper presents Technology Entrepreneurship in the curricula at a leading school of computer science and information systems, in which students are beginning to learn the theory and practice of skills needed to be business entrepreneurs or opportunists, and not mere scientists. The concentration in entrepreneurship is designed in the current model program in the disciplinary domain of the financial industry. This paper will benefit educators in schools of computer science or schools of business considering enhancement of computing curricula to be contemporary with the demands of industry.
