Why entrepreneurship matters?

Evidence indicates that developing an entrepreneurial mindset in people is a key factor for economic growth employment creation and sustainable local development. Through the cascading effect of knowledge transfer across all levels of society, entrepreneurial universities play a crucial role in spreading that mindset.

By incorporating entrepreneurship into your teaching, you will also contribute to your university’s Third Mission by developing life skills of your students hence increase their employability and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Entrepreneurial teaching (and learning) should not be confined to business schools and economic faculties!
