Entrepreneurship is offered as an option in the Bachelor of Commerce program by the Sauder School of Business. Entrepreneurial thinking and methods are relevant as much to growing or changing existing enterprises as to creating new ventures. Building on solid conceptual foundations, this program emphasises applied and experiential elements. Topics of study include the economic drivers and financial models underpinning innovation and new ventures, creative thinking and problem solving. In the final year capstone course, students work in interdisciplinary teams taking conceptual ideas, where possible, right through from design to launch.
The Sauder School of Business offers Commerce-specific exchange programs and summer programs in Shanghai and Europe. Facilities include the David Lam Management Research Library and the Business Career Centre.
