As leaders in the business and corporate world, entrepreneurs know how to look at things differently, to identify opportunities and balance calculated risk with the potential rewards.
 
Entrepreneurship is a skill that can be taught. As an entrepreneur you’ll challenge convention, disrupt the status quo and seek solutions where others see none. You’ll need to be energetic, goal oriented and driven - not afraid to chase your dreams.
 
With entrepreneurial skills you could become founder of your own start-up, be part of a larger organisation driving change, or simply create a balanced lifestyle where you choose to work on things that light you up, that motivate you and where you get to live by your own rules.
 
The ICMS Bachelor of Business (Entrepreneurship) is designed to position you for success as an entrepreneur in any industry, with a focus on future-proofing you for adaptability in a rapidly changing world.
 
You will learn how to build, promote and manage your own business by understanding the processes used by start-ups and rapid growth small firms, as well as large corporations and non-profits. Core and specialist entrepreneurship subjects are supplemented by elective subjects from a range of business areas. Your choices might include electives in marketing, international tourism, hospitality management, sports management and event management. You could also pick from specialist contemporary areas of business such as leadership, innovation or project management. This allows you to build a personalised educational experience that reflects your interest and ambitions. These subjects will help you to think creatively and to open opportunities to become an economic innovator.
