We live in an exciting era for entrepreneurship education, one where entrepreneurship education has become ubiquitous in higher education and is nearing ubiquity in education more broadly. Given entrepreneurial activity is a major determinant of economic development and growth academia has rightfully and logically built programs focusing on the topic. A complementary explanation for entrepreneurship’s proliferation in education is academia’s realization that entrepreneurship is an interdisciplinary topic at its core. This chapter discusses this growth and ubiquity, setting the stage for the value-add inherent in student run ventures.
