Professor Anat Alon-Beck
Anat Alon-Beck joined the Department of International Business and Management at Dickinson College in Spring 2012, as an Adjunct Professor. According to Prof. Beck, “[I]t is a great honor and a privilege to serve as one of the faculty members of the Eco-E Path Mosaic, and to teach the ‘Education for Entrepreneurs’ course.”
The course presents a strategic framework with an emphasis on legal considerations for the establishment and management of start-ups and emerging growth companies. The entrepreneurial spirit is evident in all who envision opportunity where others see only challenges, develop innovative approaches for these opportunities, and marshal sufficient resources to successfully act on the opportunity.
Students in the course encounter on-the-job learning and real-world entrepreneurial experience while working on the Dickinson Farm Consulting Firm Project.
