More details

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 mean creating a new company or might mean revitalising a mature organisation 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. This course will provide you with an excellent understanding of these concepts, designed to reflect the practical realities of the modern business world.
