Higher education today is becoming more complex than ever and entrepreneurs are capitalizing on this market by making it more competitive and, hopefully, better. The Kenney College of Entrepreneurship, as one example, leverages the strengths of the established online operating systems in higher education, while implementing innovative strategies that will enhance student-professor interaction and student learning in a cyber environment. The key to the Kenney College of Entrepreneurships strategy is appreciating the fact that entrepreneurs tend to learn differently than most other students and are interested in having some control in designing their learning outcomes. Therefore, this case discusses an innovative student-professor pedagogical model that is employed by the Kenney College of Entrepreneurship. The model strives to satisfy each students internal locus of control and the colleges desire to build a premium brand by emphasizing the humanistic, scholarly, and practical aspects of entrepreneurship. The case further discusses some of the challenges and opportunities facing educators and administrators.
