University introduces compulsory entrepreneurial course

Thursday, February 08, 2018

Update: 12:48PM A NEWLY-introduced compulsory service course 'Entrepreneurship Matters' (EM) was today implemented by the Fiji National University to encourage its graduates to venture into small businesses after graduating.

This initiative will ensure that selected graduates from the university's College of Humanities and Education programs are provided the opportunity to apply for the Government's Young Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES).

Dean of the College of Humanities and Education Dr Eci Nabalarua said EM would provide students the necessary tools to use their skills and knowledge to operate a small business.

"Through this program, we will also be fulfilling the Government's call to provide training in job creation rather than job seeking and provide opportunities for the emergence of young people in small businesses to help boost the economy band to develop a cohort of graduates who will be trained in both content and business skills," she said.

More than 90 students have registered for this unit.
