Entrepreneurship: Can It Be Taught?

New Media  | 07 de mayo de 2010  | Vistas: 4

Gary Hoover analyses whether entrepreneurship is a characteristic that only a few people are born with or it can be taught and learned.  Based on his academic experience, he describes the process and techniques of teaching entrepreneurial skills to students at universities.  He points out that the art of entrepreneurship is liberal and explains how its founding principle is based on mere curiosity towards the world.  Hoover mentions some elemental topics regarding business economics in which he observes common difficulties amongst his students.   He also states that this art doesn't necessarily need to be taught through an academic scope, but preferably through an empiric and self-didactic strategy, which leads to self-exploration and the exploitation of one's personal capabilities.
