UM: Entrepreneurs

Forbes magazine published an essay by UM president Mary Sue Coleman, who wrote about the need for universities to foster entrepreneurism in their students: “One survey found that as many as 15% of our incoming freshmen had already started businesses. That’s both exciting and intimidating. The challenge for higher education today is to support our students in this vital area of economic development. While that certainly means creating new courses and programs, there also may be times when we simply need to step out of the way.” [Source]
