The Entrepreneurial Mindset: Preparing College Students for an Innovation-Fueled Economy

Concurrent Session
Wednesday January 21, 2015 2:45pm to 4:00pm

The liberal arts are forever valuable, but the actual list of liberal or liberating “arts” is always evolving.  Today, as we face a fast-paced and globally engaged economy, “entrepreneurship” is rapidly being added to the curriculum.  In this session, presenters will discuss what is involved in learning “entrepreneurship” and how entrepreneurial studies can be blended with both liberal arts and pre-professional studies.
