New Curriculum Helps Technology Students Become Young Software Entrepreneurs
Adding business and entrepreneurial training to a technical curriculum is known to improve the calibre of graduates. But combining business skills with education programmes has long been a challenge for faculties. Microsoft has formed partnerships with universities across Europe to bridge the gap between technology education and the development of entrepreneurial skills. To this end, it is running a pilot initiative to encourage the use of a new course called "Software Entrepreneurship for Students." Software Entrepreneurship for Students is a university-level training curriculum that is focused on developing the entrepreneurial skills of technology students. It can be adapted quickly for use across a variety of academic settings.
