Why Is Entrepreneurship Education Important for Higher Education?

Entrepreneurship is the driving force for economic and social value creation around the world. It improves the lives of business owners, their families, employees, communities, countries, and ultimately, society. No matter your field of expertise, you can create more value, inspire more action, and provoke more change using the entrepreneurial approach of top entrepreneurship educators.

About Babson Academy
The program not only provided tips and insights on long-term curriculum development-related issues such as devoting an entire course to failure, but it also introduced me to a variety of effective and fun classroom activities that I incorporated in my classes immediately after my return to Marietta.

The Babson Collaborative annual Global Summit, the Fieldnotes, and the Babson Fellows Program have all been immensely useful. Interacting with other Collaborative members helped me evaluate and roll out potential initiatives at FLAME University. Other benefits have included encouraging our entrepreneurship faculty to create case studies, having more than 100 FLAME University students participate in the Collaborative Global Student Challenge, and making Babson Build a core part of our one-year program in Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
