Abstract

Entrepreneurship education fills numerous vital roles in creating entrepreneurial intention and inspiring the business leaders of tomorrow. However, literature identifies a need for more practice-oriented, truly cross-discipline education incorporating legal aspects. This paper provides a case study of a new Entrepreneurship graduate program, Master of Entrepreneurial Transactions, bridging business and law programs. The paper first demonstrates how the new program addresses key issues including the need for more practice-oriented, cross-discipline programs designed for the start-up ready entrepreneur. The case study identifies the gaps the program fills in terms of both educational focus and instructor availability. After defining the context of the new program in the literature, Fayolle and Gailly’s (2008) model is used to describe and analyze this new program. The Who, What, Why, Whom and Which (results) description framework provides pedagogical context. The case study of this cross-discipline, practice focused entrepreneurship graduate program with legal underpinnings may inspire further discussion of emerging areas at the intersection of business law and entrepreneurship education.
