MSc TIP Info Session 11 December 2019 (Wednesday) 

 

 

We live in a world where the future is uncertain. Technology is evolving and will play an increasing significant role in the world’s economic landscape. As drivers of technology innovation, entrepreneurs should be sensitive to and quick in identifying economic values of technology and seize new opportunities to translate them into products and services that benefit society. Entrepreneurship is a cornerstone of the growth strategies for the future economy.

 

Entrepreneurship education serves as an excellent foundation for the types of creative, innovative ideas we need to succeed in the 21st century. Studying entrepreneurship benefits participants from different social and economic backgrounds because it teaches people on how to think, judge, decide, and act under certainty in order to survive and thrive. It provides budding entrepreneurs with the skills and knowledge to come up with business ideas and develop their own ventures. The skills needed to start a business are relevant in any field and would also be desirable attributes for being an employee.

 

Join us for a fireside chat, with our alumni sharing on their MSc TIP journey and enterprising stories!
