Master of Business Administration - Entrepreneurship

You often hear about successful business moguls that dropped out of school, but many times, that’s not the whole story. Larry Page and Sergey Brin were drop-outs, but they didn’t drop out of a bachelor’s course. They dropped out of their PhD. Which means you need to at least get to this level before you consider quitting school to pursue business.

Entrepreneurship is a specialization taught under the Master’s qualification in Business that emphasizes entrepreneurial skills, competencies and knowledge required by the industry as necessary for successful strategic business management within a global economy.

The programme will improve students’ ability to translate business knowledge into concrete actions suitable for the business environment.
