In today's environment, many of us want to be entrepreneurs and launch our startups. But do we ever try to find out as to what qualities or traits are required to be an entrepreneur and then look within us and evaluate whether or not we have those qualities and traits.
Entrepreneurship development is one of the most simple but unfortunately also the least understood subject of management or an MBA course. We tend to read the theory without correlating it with the practical aspects and then we memorize the exam related theory and also pass the exams. But that does not serve the purpose in real life.
In this course, hosted by PRUDENCE Engineering and Financial Consultants, Col (Dr) Shabbar Shahid has explained in a very lucid manner...the theory as well as the practical aspects of entrepreneurship.
On completion of this course, you will not automatically become an entrepreneur but I can assure you that you will know what an entrepreneur, entrepreneurship and enterprise means in the true sense and you will also be able to evaluate your own self whether you have it in you. And just in case you don’t have those traits, you would know that you need to develop them before you launch your own enterprise or a startup. And if you are learning this only for the purpose of an academic exam, then you will not only be able to face your exam in a better way but a clear understanding of the subject will help you put into practice the learning in your professional career.
