October 31, 2008
“Innovation and entrepreneurship will continue to drive business in the new world economy,” said Barbara Kahn, dean of the University of Miami School of Business Administration. “We are proud to join organizations around the world in promoting entrepreneurship as part of our effort to foster innovation and new venture growth among our students and the wider business community.”
The UM School of Business has been committed to fostering student entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thought leadership for more than 60 years. Through its unique results-driven approach to entrepreneurship education, the School offers a robust entrepreneurship curriculum, supports programs to nurture student-run businesses and provides a research environment where entrepreneurial thinking flourishes. Not only do students learn about entrepreneurship in the classroom, they participate in real-world consulting for small businesses and immersion opportunities which include the School’s long-running annual entrepreneurship competition and our successful entrepreneurship mentorship program, among other initiatives.
The School-sponsored Global Entrepreneurship Week activities range from open classes on a variety of entrepreneurship topics to a panel discussion featuring recent School of Business graduates who are entrepreneurs. The events are open to all University of Miami students and alumni. View the complete schedule here.
