Lesson 9
The Entrepreneur and Human Capital

In this lesson, students investigate the ways in which the entrepreneur develops his or her human capital. By analyzing employment data, students discover the relationship between a person's education and earnings potential. Students then explore the competency model as a framework for thinking about education and professional development, defining and reflecting on the competencies the entrepreneur needs in order to run a business successfully. Finally, students will complete a self-assessment and identify the competencies they need to work on in order to increase their entrepreneurial potential.
