Entrepreneurship education is an increasingly important component of higher education, particularly in the context of liberal arts, as it complements student learning by providing them with the knowledge and skills needed to turn ideas into successful ventures. Besides putting into action their interdisciplinary learning, critical thinking and problem solving skillsets, it also widens students’ career options by preparing them to take on entrepreneurship at an earlier stage. Careers of the future are no longer limited to conventional employment – entrepreneurship has become a major driver of innovation and economic growth in today’s rapidly changing markets.
Entrepreneurship education can also foster a culture of innovation and creativity on campus. By encouraging students to think critically and creatively about complex issues and to develop innovative solutions to real-world problems, entrepreneurship education can help prepare them to become engaged and informed citizens who are ready to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
