Can entrepreneurship be taught? I think the skills that make successful entrepreneurs and small business owners can be taught. Eight Arkansas community colleges are taken action on that theory, offering a new business degree option and certificate in Entrepreneurship, the RUPRI Center for Rural Entrepreneurship in their September 2008 Rural Entrepreneurship Newsletter. (You do subscribe, right?)
In addition, the Arkansas Delta Training and Education Consortium (ADTEC) is partnering with Arkansas State University to develop a career pathway in Entrepreneurship to be delivered to 12 counties in eastern Arkansas through the ADTEC University Center, located at Mid-South Community College in West Memphis. The pathway will include multiple entry and exit points at the high school, community college, and university levels, including a certificate of proficiency, technical certificate, associate degree, and baccalaureate degree.
