Do you want to be an entrepreneur?
What does it take to start your own business? Sure, you need drive and an entrepreneurial attitude, but what else?
The number of new entrepreneurship degrees and courses within business programs offered by universities and business schools both in Canada and abroad prove that education providers are recognizing the need for skills in those areas.
A solid background in business will provides you with an overall understanding about accounting and finances, marketing and HR, while most universities also include specific courses on entrepreneurship as part of their business programs.
Studying also gives you an opportunity to develop a stable network of potential business contacts. Fellow students could well become your future clients, or even business partners.
Whether you stay in Canada or study abroad, there is no shortage of information to help you make your decision. Consider attending one of the semi-annual Study and Go Abroad Fairs www.studyandgoabroad.com taking place in Vancouver (March 3), Montreal (March 5) and Toronto (March 6). The fairs will feature universities such as the Queen’s School of Business, Bond University and Charles Sturt (from Australia), and University of Hawaii’s Shidler School of Business – all of whom have incorporated entrepreneurial education into their business programs.
