Your career is the first and the most important venture you will create.

Today’s entrepreneurs do more than start businesses. Entrepreneurship is a vital part of every career. Learning how to think and act like an entrepreneur is a key part of career success. Employers seek out self-starters who can identify, plan, and execute new opportunities.

The same skills that power high growth ventures can be applied in your own business or your career, as an owner or as a manager.

Want to learn about how business works but don’t know where to start?

Want to pursue a career in your chosen trade or technology in a more entrepreneurial way?

Want to learn these business skills without having to take another diploma or degree? Learn at your own pace, conveniently through Part-time Studies, from knowledgeable business experts.
