Entrepreneurship and Innovation Practicum

(elective of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Major and E&I Minor) The 'Entrepreneurship and Innovation Practicum' enables students to gain practical experience in an entrepreneurial or innovative organization and translate those experiences into academic learning. With close guidance of the practicum faculty, students will identify and work with a business, public, or nonprofit organization. In addition to 5 formal class sessions, students, working individually or in small teams, will complete a defined organizational project of approximately 100 hours that has both practical value and academic rigor. Students will provide status reports on a weekly basis to the practicum faculty and organization supervisor and receive regular faculty coaching during the practicum. Students will be assessed on their professionalism as well as on a detailed written project proposal and oral presentation on the completed project to a panel at the conclusion of the semester.
