Entrepreneurship (MGT 602) Fall 2013
Due Date: 10-11-2013
TOPIC: The Importance of Educational institutes in stimulating
Entrepreneurial propensities among students
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: The prime objective of this discussion is to make students explore role of educational institutions in stimulating entrepreneurial propensities among students with reference to Pakistan.
After attempting this assignment, the students will be able to know:
In Pakistan there is mushroom growth of universities from which a large number of business graduates pass out every year. It has been observed that most of the students graduating from these universities prefer jobs over business. Most of the students might be getting jobs of their own choice and the rest of students then think for doing something else for earning money. It might be of doing various kinds of business activities but percentage of these students is least observe as compared to those who give preference to jobs. It is inferred from the situation that universities have failed to promote business propensities among students. There might be multiple reasons behind this but the universities are somehow greatly responsible for not stimulating the business propensities. At present Pakistani economy is growing at the average of 4 to 5 percent every year. Thus employment creation process is very slow. Right now universities have to create job creators rather than job seekers.
Point of Discussion:
Keeping in mind the present scenario, what are the different factors due to which our universities are failed in stimulating entrepreneurial intentions (Provide at least 6 reasons to enrich your discussion)? (30 marks)
1. Keep your discussion with the mentioned scenario and irrelevant answers and material will not be graded.
2. Be careful from those blogs who are promoting cheating culture among our students and killing their creativity and critical thinking. Answers copied from such blogs will be straight away marked as zero. Similarly any relevant or irrelevant material copied from internet sources will get the same treatment. It can seriously damage your grades.
For acquiring the relevant knowledge, do not rely only on handouts but also watch the course video lectures and read additional material available on-line or in any other mode.
