Entrepreneurship is about personal development, creativity, self-reliance, initiative taking, action orientation, i.e. becoming entrepreneurial. Putting entrepreneurship education into practice has however posed significant challenges. Here is an approach we take or help embellish at your campus:
- “about” entrepreneurship - a content-laden and theoretical approach aiming to give a general understanding
- “for” entrepreneurship – a practical oriented approach aiming at giving budding entrepreneurs the requisite knowledge and skills
- “through” - focusing on action, experiences from the real world, and reflection
This approach often leans on the wider definition of entrepreneurship.
A wider definition of entrepreneurship helps students with personal development, creativity, self-reliance, initiative-taking, and action orientation, i.e. becoming entrepreneurial in whichever field and way they choose forward in their professional life.
While there is a focus on creating a successful idea and possibly helping scale the idea, the intent is for students to learn and implement the process and methods that can help them in their entrepreneurial journey.
