What is entrepreneurship?

Entrepreneurship is the process of setting up, launching and running a business. It is also the act of seeking investment and production opportunities.

Why study entrepreneurship?

Entrepreneurs can change the way we live and work. An entrepreneur’s enterprises can improve standards of living, create wealth, jobs and the conditions for a prosperous society. As long as the business world exists, entrepreneurship is an increasingly important area of study across all levels and disciplines.
