The ICSB Global Awards in Entrepreneurship Education Excellence were created to recognize excellence in entrepreneurship education at the programmatic level. Two Program Awards will be awarded: one at the undergraduate and one at the graduate level. The winners will be announced at the ICSB 2023 World Congress in Gwangju, South Korea.
Criteria for the Entrepreneurship Education Excellence award:
1. Program’s novelty and creativity. How is this program actively initiating new ways of operating that are both innovative and humanely focused?
2. Measurable impact that the programs students. How has this program altered the students’ experience? What data is shown to indicate this impact?
3. Impact on society. How is this program reimagining the educational experience of the next generation of entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators?
4. Program’s replicability in other parts of the world. How might this program’s philosophy or operation be transmitted and/or promoted elsewhere throughout the global entrepreneurship community.
The following is an overview of the submission process, which begins with a nomination of the program. Self-nominations are encouraged. These initial nominations require a brief nominee information packet including all information described below. Finalists are chosen by the Pedagogy Awards Committee and are notified via email. Those selected as finalists must then submit elaborating documents and commit to presenting their program at the ICSB Congress. Finalists must register at the ICSB Congress and can present in person or online.
Typically, the ICSB Global Awards in Entrepreneurship Education Excellence Committee receives numerous nominations for each award. As a result, it is possible that a specific program might not be selected as a finalist. Applicants are advised that any organization or individual may submit nominations in more than one category. However, no organization or individual may be a finalist in more than one category in any particular year. Therefore, if an individual or institution elects to submit in more than one category and is selected as a finalist in more than one category, they must choose which category they wish to compete in as a Finalist and withdraw from the remaining categories.
As the quality of applications ICSB receives is exemplary, it is possible that one or more truly outstanding organizations or individuals may be nominated for a particular award and not receive it. To deal with this possibility as effectively and as fairly as possible, the following guidelines have been established:
Nominees must submit an executive summary, no more than 11 pages, that contain the following information. The deadline for initial submissions is June 10, 2023.
