Annals in Entrepreneurship Education series

Edited by Michael H. Morris

A sizable gap exists between the ample demands for (and growing supply of) entrepreneurship education and our understanding of how to best approach the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship. To help close this gap, the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) has identified some of the most important and provocative work on entrepreneurship education over the years, and worked with the authors of this work to produce updated perspectives. The intent is to capture the richest insights and best practices in teaching entrepreneurship, building entrepreneurship curricula, and developing educational programs.

Extract

The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI) was established in 2000 in the Warrington College of Business Administration at the University of Florida (UF). The mission: to empower and transform students to be entrepreneurial in their lives and pursue opportunities and innovations in the startup, social, and corporate arenas. Since this time, CEI has been involved in teaching the practice of entrepreneurship at both the graduate and undergraduate levels and emphasizes value-creation and the pursuit of emerging opportunities in entrepreneurial success. In September 2011, a new facility was opened, including the Jeff Gold Experiential Learning Laboratory, launched to provide a new home for student experiential learning activities. Through courses, degree programs, and special events such as speakers and workshops, CEI serves close to 2,500 students per year. Our focus here is on our graduate programs. With more students looking to change the world, engaging in today’s connected global entrepreneurial economy, and immersing themselves in rigorous and innovative experiential academic programs, the Thomas S. Johnson Master of Science in Entrepreneurship (MSE) Program was created in 2003 to serve this need. As one of the pioneering specialized Master of Science degrees in Entrepreneurship in the nation, the program invites highly motivated and high-energy individuals from throughout the world to pursue their entrepreneurial studies at UF.
