Our society is constantly changing, thus it is challenging us to step out of our comfort zone, take actions and make a change in our community. Nowadays, students have the chance to do that through an entrepreneurship degree.
Entrepreneurship degrees are designed to develop students’ leadership skills, as well as technical skills, in order to prepare them to start their own business. Candidates learn what it takes to start a new business, starting with networking until selling their idea.
Unlike a business degree, which focuses more on technical information, entrepreneurship is the ‘creative’ part. This degree emphasises the concepts and ideas behind a business while understanding its environment and major bottlenecks.
Graduating from an Entrepreneurship course has plenty of positive aspects. Undoubtedly, the most important one is the students’ mindset. Entrepreneurs are proactive and willing to take initiative, which is valued in this rapidly growing market.
Graduates from entrepreneurship degrees are highly sought for their knowledge and transferable skills, which makes them one of the most significant players in the business field all around the world.
Generally, graduates either start their own company or they seek opportunities in other businesses in fields like production, retail, marketing, human resources, finances and so on.
Entrepreneurship courses are a three-year commitment, in which you need to complete a certain amount of credits to be able to complete your studies. The number of credits required varies from university to university.
Moreover, there are some institutions in which entrepreneurship is required to be studied together with another minor course. The minor course, often called the ‘flexible’ course can be chosen from any other discipline area within the university.
I have been disappointed with the inconsistent quality of Professors. Whereas certain lecturers have been very impressive and charismatic, there have been a number (in the Management Department specifically) that I have found to not be engaging nor very knowledgeable. Furthermore, as a Graduate student, my priority is around career connections and networks. This is another area that I feel like the Institution could invest further in. Sometimes the academic life can feel too far removed from the business world and opportunities to gain exposure often take individual agency.
On the other hand, the school’s diversity and international student base have been particularly inspiring and supportive of learning.View more
