ABSTRACT
This paper proposes a new perspective on entrepreneurship curriculum design, one that is founded upon the emerging research into the cognitive skills that successful entrepreneurs possess and deploy. Specifically, this paper borrows from a new book written by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner. Gardner's book, Five Minds for the Future, purports to be an intellectual foundation for general education and curriculum development. This paper utilizes Gardner's "minds" approach as a theoretical framework specific to the challenge of developing curriculum for teaching entrepreneurship. Five minds for the entrepreneurial future are developed, along with their implications for entrepreneurship curriculum development and design.
