Entrepreneurial Education: An Integrated Curricular Approach

Entrepreneurial Education: An Integrated Curricular Approach


Guide Description:
The Integrated Business and Entrepreneurship Program at Spokane Community College is a cutting edge, interdisciplinary, immersion style approach to mentoring entrepreneurs through a yearlong process of learning in an integrated model. 


Full Description:

Traditional education approaches to entrepreneurship are examined and contrasted with an integrated model. Typical approaches to entrepreneurship education remain static using a common silo delivery method. Students are given limited choices of which classes to enroll in, times to enroll, and often, who will be instructing. This interjects a dysfunction into an otherwise systematic approach necessary for an entrepreneur to develop a business idea from discovery to launch. To breakdown the silo’s inherent in our educational systems, the faculty at Spokane Community College created an environment where a core of five instructors, various community leaders, and business persons collaborate to deliver content targeted to enhance and stimulate learning. Information delivered when information is needed is information that is used! We set the students on a yearlong path of entrepreneurial discovery and adventure that clarifies their understanding of the entrepreneurial process, business plan development, and launch of a civic based business with lasting personal and community impacts.
