Entrepreneurship is a General Education Course! The Why, How and Transferability of the Concept

This paper describes a course entitles Entrepreneurship and Innovation (E&I) that appears to be the first to be given general education status as a social and behavioral science. The paper argues that the core concepts of entrepreneurial thinking are conistent with the goals of general education. Entrepreneurship adds a new dimension to general education by emphasizing integrative learning. This fills a gap defined by leaders who seek to reinvigorate general and education and thereby prepare students for leadership in the 21st Century. The discussion concludes with lessons that other colleges can use to incorporate an E&I course into their curriculum.
