Who Requires Entrepreneurship Education

Version 2.3
February 14, 2016

In August of 2001 and September of 2013 I inquired on the ENTREP-L discussion list about schools which either required an entrepreneurship course as part of the core requirements, or included entrepreneurship as a component in core courses. With around two dozen responses (see Thanks To below), I was able to put together the following list. It covers Courses Required of All StudentsEntrepreneurship Included in the Capstone Course, and Entrepreneurship Required of Management Majors. As always, let me know what changes are needed - you can email me at  jerome.katz@slu.edu.
