Entrepreneurship is more than an area of expertise – it’s a mind-set. Grow your ideas and share them with the world, be your own boss, or develop your existing role within a company. Entrepreneurship at Otago teaches you to recognise and exploit business opportunities. Our innovative and stimulating programmes take a problem solving approach. They’re designed to help you take that next step and create your own future.
Do you want to start your own business, or create an innovative spin off? If so, the Master of Entrepreneurship (MEntr) degree could be your launch pad for success! Entrepreneurship is also available as a major subject for the Postgraduate Diploma in Commerce (PGDipCom).
Entrepreneurs are responsible for the development and introduction of many new products and services, and for opening new markets. Entrepreneurship is also important in today’s changing world for the solutions it brings to environmental, social, and economic challenges.
It used to be thought that entrepreneurs were special, that they were born rather than made. However, research has shown that entrepreneurs learn to do what they do, and their success depends largely on their skill and expertise in business.
