Entrepreneurship education can greatly benefit STEM students. STEM education is changing to realize these benefits. Through surveying students and interviewing faculty and alumni at WPI, we investigate if education properly equips STEM students with the necessary financial knowledge and skills needed in the business world. Findings show that although corporate finance is important, STEM students are generally not exposed to and lack financial knowledge. Exposure to corporate financial education through multidisciplinary projects and courses would be beneficial for STEM students.
