An article from HBR of a subject which comes across very often: Can Entrepreneurship Be Taught in a Classroom?
The simple answer, by the way which many tend to shy away from for fear of getting bludgeoned and attacked by academia is: NO
There is plenty of skepticism regarding whether one can learn entrepreneurship in a business classroom setting. Decision making process in true entrepreneurship involves disruptions of the usual business rules, norms, and analytical models. When one looks at successful entrepreneurs and their thought process it is a fact that their actions do not conform to the scientific and academic management rationality that is promoted in most management education (MBAs) platforms. Academia cannot teach entrepreneurial irrational discipline thought process because it does not conform to their old, traditional, defunct ideas of rationality based on decades old processes.
