BMGT3005H Entrepreneurship and Innovation (HK)

Academic Year 2019/2020

This course will examine and discuss the processes and the issues involved in new venture creation. The course is based on the premise that there is a very identifiable process involved in setting up a new business, that it is possible to think your way through the process, to manage the process in an active way and to develop a first class Business Plan for a New Venture. The course will help you to explore your own entrepreneurial abilities and will encourage this entrepreneurial behaviour in your business career. This behaviour may reflect action in the role of independent or corporate entrepreneurship, the repositioning of a family firm or, working as a support agent in a bank or public agency promoting enterprise. The module provides for the blending of its theory and practice contents with the collective workplace experiences of the participants, to this end participants will be expected to contribute critical reflection on their workplace experiences along with collaborative interpretation of such experiences in both classroom and study group settings. Advance preparation for classes and workshops will be an important feature, with readings and questions for reflection assigned at the commencement of the trimester.
