The award, presented at the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) annual conference in Hilton Head, S.C., recognizes college educators who have created new and challenging learning activities that actively involve students in the entrepreneurial experience.
Green was selected from more than 30 entrants. Entries were judged for their innovation, critical thinking, theoretical foundation, and replicability.
The exercise is just one example of the innovative entrepreneurship education initiatives Green leads at Mtech, which include 15 undergraduate and five graduate courses, five executive education modules, four summer courses for high school students, and one for eighth graders.
The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program, spearheaded by Green and launched during fall 2010, is modeled after the Hinman CEOs living-learning entrepreneurship program and is offered to freshmen and sophomores.
