Bachelor of Business Administration, Major in Entrepreneurship

Developing the entrepreneurial abilities and spirit of Canadians is critical in generating a dynamic economy that can compete globally and provide a growing standard of living. The risks of owning a small business are significant and the hours are generally quite long, but there is no better feeling than that which comes from launching a successful new business venture and being respected by one’s fellow citizens for making a contribution to the local community. Opportunities for new venture creation in Canada are very good due to a vibrant economy, a stable political environment, and close proximity to the US market. For creative people with a strong work ethic and a lower aversion to risk, a career as an entrepreneur may be the right choice.

Entrepreneurship Majors will learn to research new business ideas, prepare formal business plans, secure initial financing, and manage small businesses on an on-going basis. After graduation, it is hoped that many students will start-up their own ventures after acquiring some valuable industry experience and saving needed equity capital. A few will also return home to work in the family firm with the hope of eventually taking over.

Entrepreneurial skills are also important to managers in larger organizations. "Intrapreneurs" as they are called do many of the same things that an entrepreneur would — develop new product ideas, prepare business plans and secure financing — without operating their own small businesses. Larger organizations are naturally less innovative than small start-ups due to their bureaucratic nature, so being able to attract managers with strong entrepreneurial skills is critical to their success. Large companies that can create an innovative environment do very well especially when you combine it with their easier access to financing.
