Ideal for the aspiring entrepreneur, the Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) Entrepreneurship concentration gives you the unique opportunity to start a business while earning your business degree.
You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the entrepreneurial process, as well as develop the skills and expertise for careers in entrepreneurship and small business management.
Hands-on learning is a key feature of the program. You’ll experience all of the steps involved in creating an enterprise – from forming the idea to developing a business plan and launching the enterprise.
