Entrepreneurship

Do you have dreams of starting up an organization?

OKWU’s Entrepreneurship degree helps students process the starting of a business, a startup company or other organization. The entrepreneur develops a business plan, acquires the human and other required resources, and is fully responsible for its success or failure.

Our nation’s economics depends on the success of an entrepreneur in its ever changing and increasingly competitive global marketplace. Entrepreneurship is not just the precursor of business.

Entrepreneurs are vital to the growth of the economy.

Churches, non-profit organizations and even government agencies use entrepreneurial methods to develop fresh ideas, creative problem solving, and innovative ways of doing things. Since entrepreneurs’ success hinges on the thriving of their organization, OKWU equips students with an Entrepreneurship degree to cultivate their business management, financial acuity, and human resources skills.

Starting up your own business is a daunting task, but OKWU offers students hands-on experience to promote the highest success rate for your new business. At OKWU, your education will include courses like:

  • Statistics

  • Principles of Marketing
  • New Venture Development

Strategy, planning, finance, human resources, and marketing techniques will give you an idea of how to successfully pursue your dream. Most importantly, however, graduating with an Entrepreneurship from OKWU will give you a solid foundation of Christian ethics and a stewardship and servanthood mentality.
