shutterstock_132016772An interesting article I came across was published in and dealt with a new trend; Though it’s from September 2013 I believe this is a new trend we will see in the coming years. Artists, designers, and creative people are searching for the right place to study entrepreneurship. However, we need to ask ourselves “is the existing model of an MBA or entrepreneurial studies the right thing?” or should we find a new way?

Andrea Huspeni is mentioned as an example for Art-Entrepreneurship studies, Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, and the school’s Pave Program in Arts Entrepreneurship. I checked the program website and found lectures on video and more information. If you are interested, you should check it out HERE.

Andrea Huspeni analyzed the reasons for the change in entrepreneurial studies and among them, the fact that more students from nontraditional business jobs are interested in entrepreneurship. To further compound the subject, the teaching method is changing. A shift in focus to studying outside of the classroom means more experience-oriented classes.
