Description
The purpose of this highly interactive, discussion-based course is to help students learn about entrepreneurship and the various ways in which it shapes their lives. The course engages students on three levels by: 1) Exploring entrepreneurship conceptually as a phenomenon, i.e. investigating entrepreneurship from a theoretical and historical perspective: learning what it is, why is exists, and how it has shaped evolution of society and the fabric of everyday life; 2) Analyzing the processes and behaviors of innovative entrepreneurs (e.g. Warby Parker, Tesla, Kiva, etc.) in generating unique solutions to problems facing society; and 3) Helping students create their own entrepreneurial opportunities by leveraging personal skills, interests, and social networks.
