Today let’s briefly consider this very interesting topic! Can entrepreneurship be taught?
Now, the world has seen various angles and descriptions of both successful and non-successful entrepreneurs. Universities and other colleges globally have various programs that teach entrepreneurship, business management, business administration, commerce etc. Various people including entrepreneurs, university professors and students, including society keep on asking this question over and over again. Can entrepreneurship be taught?
On the other side, one can argue that to pose the above question is a bit dumb simply because anything can be taught. What’s your opinion in this regard? Rather, the question should be; Is entrepreneurship education useful to people? Does it add value to the graduates and give them any leading edge at all in business? Is there any remarkable positive difference as far as business success is concerned, between an entrepreneurship or business degree graduate, and any common uneducated man or someone who studied any other irrelevant discipline?
Candidly, I don’t think I can answer these questions but I want to simply draw your attention to the following interesting things.
Right! As I mentioned earlier, I’m not going to make the conclusion for you. Ok? You could have your business degree but play it smart by reaching beyond the degree, and having remarkable business success. However, you could also have several business-related degrees, a doctorate degree or whatever you like, and still have a catastrophic business failure. I mean the type that makes newspaper headlines for a while.
It’s really up to you! Bye for now.
