Learning Objectives: Gain knowledge of how to use an innovative process to develop students with an entrepreneurial mindset, hard and soft skills, and a community of practice reflecting the NACE competencies. Engage with panelists to identify the ways in which this kind of challenge can be developed at different institutions.
