When building an MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation course, here are a few key things we learned from surveying our community of over 4,000 entrepreneurship educators:
- MBA students want to know how to apply what they are learning in class; they want to practice skills. In this course, explain to your students they will practice skills such as problem solving, customer interviewing, and prototyping that will help them create value in the organization they have or will found, or in the organization at which they are employed.
- MBA students are likely working a full-time job, and many have a variety of other family and community responsibilities beyond that. Take the opportunity right away to show these students that the skills and experiences they will be exposed to can create value in all those roles they juggle in their lives.
- MBA students want their learning to be real. Make it real by adding “real” voices to your classroom – invite experienced entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs into your classroom as guest speakers and judges.
