CAMBRIDGE, MA, April 23, 2012 — MIT OpenCourseWare has released a new cross-disciplinary course list presenting the core academic materials—including syllabi, lecture notes, assignments and exams—from 66 MIT entrepreneurship courses. The courses are organized into lists that cover core and supplemental entrepreneurship concepts and are also presented in topical lists including finance, law, leadership, marketing, and strategy. In addition, the resource includes videos on entrepreneurship subjects and links to entrepreneurship-related sites from across the MIT community. Initial courses selected for the list were curated by MIT Sloan School of Management Senior Lecturer Joseph Hadzima, with input from Bill Aulet, Managing Director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.

“We’re very excited to see this resource published on the OCW site,” said Bill Aulet. “This site highlights some very valuable entrepreneurship educational material from MIT and will be a practical resource for entrepreneurs worldwide.”

The launch of the entrepreneurship cross-disciplinary list represents the first phase of MIT OpenCourseWare’s efforts to organize and publish MIT’s entrepreneurship curriculum, and the OCW staff will be adding additional course materials and supplemental content in the future, as well as updating some of the content currently included.

The entrepreneurship cross-disciplinary course list is the latest in MIT OpenCourseWare’s series of cross-disciplinary list addressing topics including energy, the environment and transportation. These lists highlight how MIT addresses today’s complex challenges across the many traditional disciplines and departments that structure the Institute. The entrepreneurship course listing includes materials from the Sloan School of Management, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the Media Arts and Sciences program, and the Experiential Studies Program.
