MIT OpenCourseWare: New Resource for Entrepreneurship Education

Have you ever wanted to start your own business? Or thought about approaching your work with an entrepreneurial mindset? Well, thanks to MIT OpenCourseWare, you’re in luck! Just yesterday, the organization announced that, thanks to a grant from the NASDAQ OMX Foundation, it is now able to provide a collection of entrepreneurship resources. Here’s a blurb from the press release:

“MIT OpenCourseWare has released a new cross-disciplinary course list presenting the core academic materials—including syllabi, lecture notes, assignments and exams—from 66 MIT entrepreneurship courses. The courses are organized into lists that cover core and supplemental entrepreneurship concepts and are also presented in topical lists including finance, law, leadership, marketing, and strategy. In addition, the resource includes videos on entrepreneurship subjects and links to entrepreneurship-related sites from across the MIT community.

‘We’re very excited to see this resource published on the OCW site,’ said Bill Aulet, Managing Director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship. ‘This site highlights some very valuable entrepreneurship educational material from MIT and will be a practical resource for entrepreneurs worldwide.’

The launch of the entrepreneurship cross-disciplinary list represents the first phase of MIT OpenCourseWare’s efforts to organize and publish MIT’s entrepreneurship curriculum, and the OCW staff will be adding additional course materials and supplemental content in the future, as well as updating some of the content currently included.

The entrepreneurship cross-disciplinary course list is the latest in MIT OpenCourseWare’s series of cross-disciplinary list addressing topics including energy, the environment and transportation. These lists highlight how MIT addresses today’s complex challenges across the many traditional disciplines and departments that structure the Institute. The entrepreneurship course listing includes materials from the Sloan School of Management, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the Media Arts and Sciences program, and the Experiential Studies Program.”

So if you’ve ever thought of starting your own business – or if you simply want to think more like an entrepreneur – consider combining these resources with our Business Administration discipline. You might just find yourself ready to start your dream company in no time!
