  25. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course: Needed to compete with national trends
  26. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? Without a special topics course, we are unable to offer education on specific areas of interest to students. Because entrepreneurship is driven by rapidly changing economic and technology factors, the need exists for faculty to develop and deliver education in numerous areas on a potentially non-reoccurrring basis.

  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) Doctorate. Plus Instructors should have some level of applied experience in creating new business and/or social ventures.
  29. Objectives: To provide students with in-depth, specialized, thematic learning opportunities in areas of entrepreneurship not covered in current core or elective courses.
  30. Learning Outcomes: Students will demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the concepts, tools and skills of entrepreneurship and the ability to apply them in problem-solving contexts. Specific learning outcomes will vary dependent on topic.
