Organization creation separates entrepreneurship from other disciplines. In today's rapidly growing net economy and ever-changing entrepreneurial environment, discovering the behaviors of individuals who create new organizations, and observing the behaviors or organizational personnel who exploit new market opportunities within existing organizations are the foci of the behavioral school of entrepreneurship. Business schools that adapt curricula to examine the kinds of activities entrepreneurs perform, the information they process, with whom they must work, where, and how frequently may help describe the emerging needs of the current dynamic new economy. The following paper describes the development of an e-business entrepreneurship course with field-based projects as the core outcome of the curriculum. The paper describes the background leading to the course, the student e-commerce/e-business projects, reflections and reactions of the business sector, and initial student evaluations.
