Smart Entrepreneurs will be checking out business and work experience options at the Study and Go Abroad Fair

Do you want to be an entrepreneur?  What does it take to start your own business?  Certainly you need drive and an entrepreneurial attitude, but what other skills do you need?  The number of new entrepreneurship degrees and courses within business programs offered by universities and business schools in Canada and worldwide prove that education providers are recognizing the need for skills in those areas.

Why study to start your own business?

If you already have a lot of good ideas, why do you need to study?  Do you really need to learn about business first?

Actually you do .. you need to have an overall understanding about accounting and finances, marketing and HR.  Any business program will teach you excellent skills to help you set up your business, and many universities include specific modules on Entrepreneurship into their business programs.  At our Spring Study and Go Abroad Fairs in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, universities such as the Queen’s School of Business, Bond University and Charles Sturt (from Australia), and University of Hawaii’s Shidler School of Business have incorporated entrepreneurial skills into their business programs.

Studying also gives you an opportunity to develop a network of potential business contacts .  Fellow students could well become your future clients, or business partners.  An advantage with studying overseas is that you will be introduced to different business practices, which you might be able to adopt or adjust for your local business.

The Study and Go Abroad Fairs will also feature internship opportunities, work abroad programs and other opportunities to broaden your work experience and business knowledge.

Start planning your future now – and kick-start your new business!

About our business, Study and Go Abroad is the 'go to' site for Canadians looking to study abroad, travel, intern or volunteer. We organize fairs twice a year in various cities in Canada, and I'd recommend getting down to one of them to check out all the exciting options. As for me, I'm a business woman and a travel junkie! I have always had a passion for travel and for experiencing new cultures. Brought up in England, I traveled Europe in my teens and early 20s. I have lived and worked on 3 continents; Europe, Africa and North America. I have traveled extensively worldwide both for work and for fun - and still can't believe how much of the world there is still to see!
