Bachelor of Business Administration – Concentration in Entrepreneurship

Startup life can be tough on anyone, make sure you start with the right skill sets

Entrepreneurship is not for the faint-hearted. An entrepreneur must plan, start and run their own business from the ground up, with limited resources, and must take on all the risks of the venture. For this reason, a large part of studying entrepreneurship consists of learning from the successes and failures of entrepreneurs in the past, analyzing what mistakes were made at the beginning, and what additional information would have been beneficial. Entrepreneurs must develop their business instincts, learning to identify new goals as they grow and the situation changes, and to identify new opportunities and swiftly analyze how best to take advantage of them. While the risks and effort demanded from an entrepreneur are high, so are the rewards. Entrepreneurs are truly free and autonomous, and their skills in collaboration, creativity and innovation can lead them towards new opportunities as they arise. In a volatile and dynamic world, an entrepreneur will always find new pathways to venture down when paradigms shift.

Entrepreneurs must develop their business instincts, learning to identify new goals as they grow and the situation changes, and to identify new opportunities and swiftly analyze how best to take advantage of them.

Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship is ideal for ambitious students who have their own business plans, motivation and determination to start their own venture, and a keen interest in learning what it takes to make big ideas happen. Studying Entrepreneurship will empower ambitious, driven students to develop all the skills and experience that they need to succeed as founders of their own businesses. In addition, more and more corporate workplaces are coming to realize the added value which is contributed by employees who bring their entrepreneurial competencies and mindset to the workplace.

There are two paths for students studying a Entrepreneurship concentration within a Business Administration degree. The first path would be for students that want to enroll in the 3-year European program leading to a bachelor’s degree (bakalář, Bc.) awarded by UNYP and accredited by the American International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE), and the National Accreditation Bureau for Higher Education (NAÚ). Alternatively, students that want an American degree as well as the UNYP degree must be enrolled in the State University of New York, Empire State University and UNYP Dual degree program. In either path, to obtain the concentration in Entrepreneurship, students must obtain 12 credits (24 ECTS credits) in courses from the list of the concentration subjects; select a topic for the bachelor thesis in a topic related to the concentration focus; and succeed in the Czech State Exam and earning the UNYP bachelor’s degree. The name of the concentration will appear in the UNYP Diploma Supplement along with the specification of the Major.
