Skills such os the ability to be creative, think critically, recognize opportunities and work effectively in teams are highly important to entrepreneurs. These "soft" skills are as important to entrepreneurship as "hard” skills, but can be challenging to teach and learn. This study presents the results of sunveys conducted at the beginning and end of a two-week intensive entrepreneurship course emphasizing hands-on activities and self-analysis. Rather than on writing a business plan, students examined their own entrepreneurial orientation and focused on developing soft skills such as creativity and team work. Business, law and engineering majors from three countries participated in the course, providing diversity in the class. The course culminated in the presentation of product ideas to a group of community leaders.
