“In her talk, Greene engaged the faculty audience through exercises, discussing the economic environment in which entrepreneurship is taught, definitions that frame entrepreneurship discussions, and new and existing pedagogies for curriculum,” wrote Penn State.

“‘Using Babson College and the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses and 10,000 Women initiatives as examples, we had a lively discussion on a wide range of approaches to guiding student learning related to being entrepreneurial, regardless of the type of industry or organization,’ said Greene.”
