Entrepreneurship is the key
At a time when the whole world is gripped with economic uncertainties, a focussed approach for result-oriented change in the way the economy is driven is education, especially science and technology education.
More importantly, we believe that instead of merely focusing on theoretical learning, a science and technology curricula that emphasizes skills training and buttressed with entrepreneurship development is key to the transformation of the economy.
With an approach that is more focused on entrepreneurship , it would ensure that graduates have the capacity to start their own businesses and employ others rather than depend on any government for employment, a situation that would greatly reduce unemployment and poverty.
Teaching science in the context of the local environment makes science and technology relevant and more easily understood by students and kindles their interest in science and technology.
We believe that entrepreneurship is a key driver of economic growth and job creation. It provides many people with career opportunities that better fit their preferences than waged employment. In addition, self-employment or business start-up is a response by significant numbers of people to job losses in the current global economic crisis.
In developing entrepreneurship , one of the most important is entrepreneurship skills. Motivated people need the right skills to identify entrepreneurial opportunities and to turn their entrepreneurial projects into successful ventures.
We also believe that Entrepreneurs arenât born, theyâre made. And they arenât anything like you think they are. Research has indicated that the majority didnât have entrepreneurial parents. They didnât even have entrepreneurial aspirations while going to school. They simply got tired of working for others, had a great idea they wanted to commercialize, or woke up one day with an urgent desire to build wealth before they retired. So they took the big leap
Stimulating innovative and growth-oriented entrepreneurship is a key economic and societal challenge to which our University has much to contribute.
We help students master some of the following skills which be believe are essential for successful entrepreneurship.
1. Self Confidence
Self confidence depicts the confidence in ones' abilities and endurance to bear the unbearable of the toughest situations in life.
Entrepreneurs need to see the things in a very different angle. They need to be sure of the coming things and they should be forward looking with prepared minds to be prepared and able to handle any kind of situation that may arise in their lives.
3. Self initiative
Grab the challenges and get yourself ahead of the competition be being more of an initiator rather then a freaking mindless entrepreneur only waiting for things to go wrong or do something when need may arise.
4. Self discipline
Entrepreneurs usually become lousy when they are nearing success and think that that's it. But a successful entrepreneur is the one who doesn't lapse in efforts and is consistent with his efforts the way he use to put in efforts
