Title

An empirical study on the impact of an entrepreneurship course on professional career decisions

Abstract

"This research focuses on whether, and if so how, entrepreneurship courses affect the career decisions of engineering students. Earlier studies have focused on the impact of entrepreneurship courses on career decisions of students with a management or other non-engineering background. This research will try to gauge the impact an entrepreneurship course has had on enrolled engineering students at the University of Missouri-Rolla. This study tries to ascertain whether these engineering students also considered setting up their own business or performing entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial activity or new product development after taking the entrepreneurship course"--Abstract, leaf iii.
