Can entrepreneurship be taught?
The Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica thinks so, and has scheduled two workshops for those thinking of starting their own business.
The short course entitled el espíritu emprendedor or the entreprenurial spirit is 13 weeks Tuesdays and Saturdays, starting Feb. 22. A shorter course is Mondays for six week in which students will seek
to improve the ideas they already have. It begins Feb. 21.
The courses are being taught by professors in the university’s Escuela de Administración de Empresas.
A third course is designed for women to provide basic skills in evaluating a business opportunity. It runs for four Tuesdays starting Feb. 22. The university is one of the major public higher education institutions in Costa Rica.
