“Entrepreneurship, which economists say is vital to our economic recovery, is thriving at Ontariouniversities with thousands of students learning how to create their own jobs and jobs for others, according to a report launched today by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU).”
Incubators exist on and off campus to help students learn what it takes to invent the next big thing, attract investors and take their products and services to market. Business acuity is also being introduced into courses over a wide range of disciplines, including the arts.
“The art of entrepreneurship is being taught in dozens of programs and hundreds of courses at Ontario universities,” says Max Blouw, COU Chair and President of Wilfrid Laurier University. “This builds tremendous capacity in our students for the benefit of our economy.”
