ABSTRACT
Entrepreneurship education is rapidly growing, both in the number of schools offering programs and in the range of courses becoming available. As students become entrepreneurs, they will need to wear a variety of "hats" and serve as the primary finance, marketing, human resource, and operations person in their new ventures. High self-efficacy, emotional intelligence, and well-developed interpersonal skills have been shown to equate to a firm's success; more concentration on the development of these skills is needed in the entrepreneurship curriculum. This paper presents the case for instituting a course that will facilitate entrepreneurship students' development of self.
