Academic Focus: Innovation Clubs

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) wants business schools to do more to support innovation. It wants schools to reinvent curricula to be more integrative and convene executive programs that create new ideas and networks. "Through outreach activities, such as business plan competitions, student consulting projects, and business incubators, business schools’ activities contribute directly to innovation in the communities they serve." One things schools can do to foster innovation is to create a student innovation club. These clubs create a sense of belonging, instill a sense of identity and purpose, and they extend learning beyond the traditional classroom. Innovation clubs are a great way for corporate practitioners, innovation consultants, and venture capitalists to get involved and tap into a source of innovation talent.

Bill Aulet opened the session with a review of a roadmap for entrepreneurship education at MIT that divides the process into three main stages – nucleation, product definition and venture development.
