As universities recognize that an entrepreneurial education is an enabler, entrepreneurship is increasingly recognized as higher education's ally. Today, more than 5,000 entrepreneurship courses are offered in over 2,000 college and universities in the United States (U.S.) (Kauffman, 2009). Entrepreneurship education is extending beyond its traditional business school offerings to engineering, arts, and sciences schools as educators develop specialized, experiential content most relevant to their student populations. The Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), a unit of the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland, is a global leader in entrepreneurship education (Barbe, Green, & Chang, 2010). Mtech's award-winning programs are being replicated throughout the U.S. and abroad to serve entrepreneurial students in pursuit of new ventures. Mtech's entrepreneurship courses and programs have more than 1,000 student enrollments annually. This chapter introduces Mtech's approach to entrepreneurship education, defines the inner workings of Mtech's entrepreneurship education initiatives, and discusses best practices and lessons learned.
