How can we integrate entrepreneurship across the curriculum?
- Need to remember it is not a one day conversation but a ongoing process. We need to change the culture to be entrepreneurial.
- Remember entrepreneurship is as different as the people that create it. Diversity must be paid attention to. (Amen!)
- Create a mindset so that entrepreneurship is not "out there" but internalized.
- Many students are already entrepreneurial because they are self-employed. These students sometimes view being self-employed not as important as having a Corporate job. This mindset has to change.
- Entrepreneurship education is like stretching. It feels good when get started but settle into our habitual sedentary way. However, in entrepreneurship education, we need to stand up and keep stretching.
- Problem based learning helps students how they can pivot themselves in their careers and also be intrapreneurs in their jobs.
- Immigrants can be the most entrepreneurial since they needed to be entrepreneurial to make a living.
- Remember students in welding, entertainment technology will most likely start a business. They need to be equipped to be successful and profitable.
