An Accelerator for Professors

Transforming students into entrepreneurs requires professors to embrace a new way of teaching. It’s no longer about the newest textbook or the hottest business model framework. It’s about getting students thinking and acting like entrepreneurs.

At the International Entrepreneurship Institute, professors are coached through a process of casting, accelerating and executing a vision for teaching entrepreneurship at their university. Professors will develop a ready-to-implement action plan uniquely crafted for their entrepreneurship course.

Every professor will walk away from the experience confident in their ability to transform students into entrepreneurs by:

  • answering the question: how do you launch and scale an impactful entrepreneurship center or program?
  • receiving expert coaching to launch a new entrepreneurship course or elevate an existing
    entrepreneurship course
    experiencing best practices from the entrepreneurship leadership team and experienced participants
  • discovering the what, how and why behind key components of an effective entrepreneurship course: mindset, culture,
    accountability, best practices, mentorship, etc.
  • designing a course based on these key components necessary to transform students into entrepreneurs
  • developing an implementation plan that is ready to launch the moment you arrive back on your campus
