Entrepreneurship Start Up

College and Entrepreneurship

A friend of mine recently posed this question – “Hey, you work with startup companies. Should a college aspiring┬ástudent pick a curriculum or stream that would be useful for a startup CEO?” Of course, the underlying assumption is that this student is planning to start a company before or after graduating.

My response was a “qualified” no. Entrepreneurship can definitely be taught, but I would be bored to death sitting through many entrepreneurship classes and coming out with a degree in entrepreneurship. Sure, I am exaggerating, but most entrepreneurs learn by doing. A business oriented curriculum is usually focused on administration (MBA), rather than creation of companies.
