First day of class at Duke today.  It doesn't seem like it but this is the start of my third year of part time teaching here. 18 seniors ready to learn about entrepreneurship.  Many of them are excited to be moving beyond the "well rounded liberal arts education" that Duke has provided and learn something "practical."  What they don't realize is just how important the problem solving and critical thinking skills that they have acquired are to the entrepreneurial process.  In fact, I would say that the skills they have are preferable to those of the business school grads I have worked with.  It also doesn't hurt that they had to be super smart to get into Duke in the first place. :)
