TMGT 7135 - Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Technology Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Transportation

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

This course is designed to help students develop a strong hands-on understanding of entrepreneurship in relation to business strategy and innovation. Unlike other business courses that concentrate narrowly on a particular function within a business - accounting, finance, marketing, production, human resources, or information systems - TMGT 7135 is a big picture course. It cuts across the whole spectrum of business and management. The focus is the total enterprise - including the industry and competitive environment in which it operates - its long-term direction and strategy, its resources and competitive capabilities, and its prospects for success.

Prerequisite(s)

TMGT 7121 and TMGT 7122 are REQUIRED courses for TMGT 7135.
