BUILDING ENTREPRENEURSHIP COMPETENCIES THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS APPS

Experiential Learning may be defined as an approximation to education where knowledge is acquired through the interaction of the individual with his/her environment. A group of professors from Tecnológico de Monterrey (México) designed and implemented an entrepreneurship course based on experiential learning. They enriched the traditional curricula of the course with a MOOC on development of Geographic Information Systems Apps. During the course, students are requested to generate business ideas on GeoApps, develop an app for Android, define a business model for their software, validate the model with a target market, and to participate in a National Elevator Pitch competition for Entrepreneurship projects. Their performance is compared with other groups following the traditional curricula. An inventory on Entrepreneurship competencies is presented, as well as conclusions on the lessons learned on this project.
