Entrepreneurship in the Computer Science and Information Systems Curriculum
Few schools of computer science and information systems have a concentration in entrepreneurship in the computing curriculum. Graduates in the computing discipline might be more marketable to business firms in the current economy if they learn the theory, if not the practice of skills, to be business entrepreneurs and not mere scientists. Industry needs such skills in the innovation of processes, products and services infused by technology. The focus of the workshop is to help instructors initiate a concentration in technology entrepreneurship in the computing curriculum of their schools. The presenters will highlight a National Science Foundation (NSF) Technology Entrepreneurship in the Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science program.
Those at the workship will learn the steps involved in initiating the concentration in Technology Entrepreneurship.
This workshop will benefit instructors in schools of computer science and information systems considering initiating a concentration in entrepreneurship that is contemporary with industry needs.
