About the eBook

'The impact of entrepreneurship education is maximized when multi-disciplinary approaches are used, and yet most professors are trained deeply in one area. Hart's book offers a dynamic and robust series of tools for educators to create their own hyper-involved classroom regardless of their discipline to prepare students to impact the real world. I highly recommend this book.'
- Julienne Shields, Millikin University, US and co-author/editor, Arts and Entrepreneurship

'This book provides a wealth of in-class exercises to engage students in all aspects of the entrepreneurial process. I found great comfort in using a resource that has such a broad repertoire of activities that can challenge students to master new ways of entrepreneurial thinking and acting. If you need an exercise on a particular topic in entrepreneurship, you will find it in this book. This is a wonderful resource to involve students in entrepreneurial experiences where they can learn by doing and reflecting.'
- William B. Gartner, Babson College, US

'Learning entrepreneurship requires doing entrepreneurship and the exercises in this book highlight doing as the pedagogy for learning. This book is my new ''go-to'' book for new exercises. Thank you for this contribution to entrepreneurship education.'
- Heidi Neck, Babson College, US

'Classroom Exercises for Entrepreneurship is a must-have companion for any entrepreneurship educator. Hart has masterfully designed 65 impactful, implementable, and exciting experiential exercises for use in classrooms across all disciplines. I'm excited to implement these in my classes this year.'
- Eric Liguori, Rowan University, US

Entrepreneurship is a creative practice with tremendous impact, but how does one effectively teach entrepreneurs to engage in this sometimes tumultuous and risk-laden process? A traditional stand and lecture approach to teaching this complex subject does not always suffice, and many professors are finding that students benefit more from hands-on experiences. By engaging and acting, students can own their knowledge and progress beyond an intellectual understanding of the subject.

This book offers sixty-five experiential exercises, each designed to be applicable to the entrepreneurial process. These cross-disciplinary exercises vary in scale from single-class activities to course projects or yearlong capstones. Learning objectives are clearly defined so that instructors can incorporate the book's exercises, games, simulations and demonstrations into their syllabi. Whether classes are basic, intermediate or advanced, instructors can use the exercises to engage their students and help them develop as creatively-minded entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurship professors seeking experiential exercises to incorporate into their teaching will find this book of value.
