“An entrepreneur is not just the founder of the business… An entrepreneur is someone who makes valuable things happen and who takes full responsibility for their success or failure.” –Daniel Priestley, Entrepreneur Revolution
Enterprise education provides the unique learning experience where students will gain rich insights, knowledge and skills to act on commercial opportunities to make “valuable things happen”. The development of enterprise skills – from identifying opportunities and assuming risks for ventures to negotiating, pitching and communicating effectively – is more crucial now than ever in today’s context of convergence and divergence of technology, rapid wave of social influence, middle class consumerism and the rise of global small businesses.
The objectives are to:
- Enhance their entrepreneurial mindset
- Equip learners with the proper attitude for the entrepreneurial mindset
- Develop their functional skillsets to see and act entrepreneurially
- Nurture a spirit of innovation
- Educate learners about the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship
By the end of the programme, students should be able to:
Embracing an enterprising ATTITUDE – the ability to affect change, recognize continuous improvement, embrace innovation and growth and willingness to learn from feedback and failure; BEHAVIOUR – seeing and acting on opportunities, learning to manage risks and adapting in times of crisis; and COMPETENCY – having the skillsets such as learning to take initiative, making good decisions, solving problems, communicating effectively, working with others, and reflecting on and reviewing outcomes.
