Objectives of the Course
Entrepreneurship course aims to learn the subjects related to the entrepreneurship concepts, to explain the key concepts in entrepreneurship, and to build a bridge between the theoretical framework and the practices in daily life. The assumption here, of course, is not that every student who takes this course will be able to successfully start their own business right away. Our aim is to enable the active participation of students and to analyze the examples of successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurship that we frequently encounter in a healthier way.
