This is a course for students who want to learn how existing organizations can be more entrepreneurial and apply those learnings in a team project setting.

Given the scope and complexity of challenges society faces, and the rapid pace in which they continue to develop, we need existing organizations to leverage their existing assets and to be material contributors of new ideas and solutions.

  • What can corporations learn from startups – and how might they set up their organizations to get the best of both worlds?
  • How can existing organizations develop and support internal entrepreneurs?

This course will address the practical steps that can be taken for existing organizations (corporations, non-profits, government, and others) to become more entrepreneurial. A systematic approach will be utilized integrating lectures, exercises, guest speakers, and a semester-long action learning project.

  • In person + Hyflex (for EMBAs)
  • Instructors: Susan Neal, Yu-Ting Kao, Sue Siegel, and Devon Sherman Daley
  • Time: Wednesdays, 4-7pm
  • Prereq(s)/Restr(s): Students should be familiar with “Disciplined Entrepreneurship: 24 Steps to a Successful Startup” by Bill Aulet
  • Admission is by application only.
  • Deadline to apply is Thursday, February 1st.
