The Evolution of an Entrepreneurship Curriculum Based on Experience and Best Practices
Silvernagel, and Jeffrey
University of North Dakota
The entrepreneurship curriculum at the University of North Dakota is under review
in order to satisfy two primary goals: (1) To maximize the probability of creating intellectual property and getting product and service innovations to market, and (2) To minimize the “brain drain” of young, educated professionals from the Northern Great Plains. The proposed evolution of the curriculum is based on practical experience with student outcomes, as well as the integration of best practices. The certificate program will be modified to help undergraduate
non-business majors prepare creative ideas for the marketplace. The sixteen-credit course sequence includes an interdisciplinary study of design, technology, production, business, and law.
