Originating from the French word entreprendre, which means "to begin something", an entrepreneur is a person who, armed with a potentially good business idea and the courage to take risks, starts a new venture or a "start-up". An entrepreneur is a risk taker, an organiser and an innovator. Some people are born entrepreneurs blessed with the requisite skills to give wings to their ideas. Such people are a rare breed, blessed with the intelligence, creativity, vision, communication skills and passion that enables them to launch and sustain successful businesses. The success stories of entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs (Apple), Larry Page and Sergey Brin (Google) and closer home - Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw (Biocon) who started their ventures in garages, have been inspiring the youth in India to choose entrepreneurship over conventional careers. But not everyone is born an entrepreneur. There are certain skills that may be honed with training and practical knowledge sharing. A course in Entrepreneurial management may provide aspiring entrepreneurs with a background to tackle all aspects of a small business or entrepreneurial endeavor. An MBA in entrepreneurship management helps develop the right set of skills required to successfully develop and sustain a successful business enterprise.
