Education + Entrepreneurship

Education is the process of preparation. The purpose of education is to support social progress. Entrepreneurship is the process of creating a new resource that generates value to others. Edupreneurship is the process of creating new ways to prepare people to contribute productively to society. If you'd like to propose a new course or program, visit the webpage for Curricular Review and Approval Processes.
