Abstract

Today’s students will face a variety of challenges in the future--technological, environmental, human and economic. To innovate new ways to meet these challenges, they will need an entrepreneurial orientation showing creativity, proactiveness and a willingness to take strategic risks. They will also need to work together in teams and negotiate with others in a global context. Entrepreneurship summer camp was designed to prepare students for these challenges by bringing together students from different countries for two-weeks of intensive study and collaborative work. Given the importance of sustainability for current and future generations, camp activities focused on the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. This paper describes some of the activities included in the entrepreneurship summer camp and presents the results of students’ self-evaluations of their skills and how much they learned from the experience.
