Business Management and Entrepreneurship is a programme designed for students seeking to start their own business or seeking to lead enterprising activities in existing companies or organisations. In a competitive global economy, the ability to discover and develop new and innovative opportunities is a highly-prized skillset much sought after by employers.
Entrepreneurship is the act of being an entrepreneur, which can be defined as "one who undertakes innovations and business acumen in an effort to transform innovations into economic goods". This may result in new organisations or may be part of revitalising mature organisations in response to a perceived opportunity. The most obvious form of entrepreneurship is that of starting new businesses; however, in recent years, the term has been extended to include social and political forms of entrepreneurial activity.
