While entrepreneurship is closely linked with the start-up process, risk and venture creation, this degree is about entrepreneurialism - focusing on the spirit or intention to behave in an enterprising or entrepreneurial way. This may involve starting a new business or venture, but also includes an all- encompassing view of how an enterprising mind-set and skillset can be useful in employment or as an active social citizen.

Share your knowledge and become part of a global community that will encourage you to challenge your understanding of the concepts of enterprise and entrepreneurship.
