Full Description: 

Panel presenters will discuss the various implications behind partnering for a statewide entrepreneurship curriculum.  The partnership was forged via the emphasis in economic development by the Governor of the State of Arkansas, the Arkansas Association of Two Year Colleges, and the support of the presidents and chancellors of two year colleges in Arkansas.  The ten colleges or approximately one-half of the community colleges in the State agreed to a major emphasis in Entrepreneurship as a part of their Applied Associate of Science Degree in Business Management.  The 21 semester-credit hour emphasis or standalone certificate will be presented for information purposes.   There will be extra time for audience participation and a Questions and Answer session.

 

The Statewide Consortium for the Entrepreneurship Curriculum is one of only a few states who engage in a statewide partnership.  Because of the commitment to economic development for each service area, under the purview of the Arkansas community colleges participating in the consortium, the curriculum was adopted and tweaked by all ten colleges.  This partnership allows for a 2 + 2 continuance of education for students in the service areas through online degree completion by some Arkansas four-year institutions.  Participants will leave with an awareness of the strengths and opportunities for improvement for building collaborations on a statewide basis from several perspectives.  The outcomes of the panel presentation articulate this State‚Äôs desire to increase economic development opportunities and the impact for her citizens.
