Campus entrepreneurs need more love

June 2013
Indianapolis Business Journal;6/3/2013 Supplement, p14B
The author argues on the need to focus on encouraging students to develop projects apart from their academic course work to bridging the gap between the classroom and the workplace. He states that the next brand of higher education that will lessen the existing alternatives will be a truly career-centered education when it is mastered. He mentions education that focuses on preparing graduates for a specific path, then setting them on it with the skills and connections to find success.
