Miami’s Entrepreneurship Education Pathway

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 18, 2008
Miami’s Entrepreneurship Education Pathway
Guide Description:
This presentation will discuss Miami Dade College’s (MDC) current partnerships and the potential opportunities surrounding the e-ship educational pathway in South Florida, including dual enrollment, faculty development initiatives that bring together high school teachers and college professors, and initiatives that connect the public schools, 2 year and 4 year colleges.


Full Description:  

This session will discuss several key points of Miami Dade College’s (MDC) current e-ship education efforts including:

1.)   The creation of a steering group comprised of faculty, staff, local business leaders and NFTE representatives that helped to design MDC’s certificate in e-ship

2.)   The creation of the A.S. in Marketing with a focus in e-ship

3.)   The connection MDC has with the South Florida Office of NFTE and the resulting faculty development initiatives

4.)   The dual enrollment program and the process of garnering the support of high school teachers that has enabled high school students to take college level e-ship courses

5.)   The outcomes MDC experiences from the first ever Pathway to Entrepreneurship College Fair which is being sponsored by our local NFTE office and will bring together educators from all levels. This event happens in October, 2008


Miami Dade College is relatively new to e-ship education but, with support from our leadership, has made a commitment to develop new programs and increase awareness of e-ship. E-ship is a “major” within Miami Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) and many high school graduates are eager to continue their e-ship studies after graduation. Although our e-ship program is still in its infancy, we are making great strides in building the connections needed to create a pathway for e-ship education. Schools who are new to e-ship education will be able to learn from both our successes and our failures along this journey.

The start of the semester has arrived accompanied by budget cuts, overflowing classes, parking shortages and tens of thousands of students with a positive outlook for the semester. Even with all of the new school year activities, we are still quite focused on building awareness of entrepreneurship education. On September 10th I will be hosting a webinar on the entrepreneurship pathway here in So. Florida. If you are interested in learning more about what we’re doing, please plan to attend. I will be discussing Miami’s Youth Entrepreneurship Pathway (YEP), which is a partnership creating a seamless entrepreneurship education pathway for students from middle school to college in Miami-Dade County. Founded in 2006, YEP partners include the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, Miami Dade County Public Schools, Miami Dade College, and The Launch Pad at the University of Miami.
