You’ll gain an overall view of entrepreneurial activity and explore different ways to approach entrepreneurship.
You’ll also learn how to consider financial and institutional systems in supporting entrepreneurship in different economies, and gain an analytical framework for understanding different approaches to entrepreneurial cultures.
