Teaching Entrepreneurial Thinking at CMU

Carnegie Mellon University is launching an $18 million initiative with $3 million in seed funding from the Kauffman Foundation to infuse entrepreneurship and innovation-management courses throughout the university's undergraduate curriculum. . . .

The effort will be managed through the establishment of a new Institute for the Study of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technological Change that will be the hub for education and research in innovation and entrepreneurship. This initiative will build on the efforts of the Donald H. Jones Center for Entrepreneurship in the Tepper School of Business. . . .

"Over the past few years, Carnegie Mellon has built up a multidisciplinary community of scholars devoted to research and advanced education in entrepreneurship and technological change," said Steven Klepper, director of the new center and the Arthur Arton Hamerschlag Professor of Economics and Social Science in Carnegie Mellon's College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Tepper School. "The support from the Kauffman Foundation will enable us to leverage this expertise throughout the university, allowing students from all disciplines to understand and exploit the power of innovation."
