It is a common path for many technology entrepreneurs, while they are experts in a narrow technology field they often find their business skills less than adequate to cope with growing number of challenges and pressure of global competition. entrepreneurship@SFU starts with the premise that many technology-oriented students simply are not exposed to fundamental principles of business operations. To address this opportunity,
Mechatronics Systems Engineering
from the School of Engineering Science in collaboration with the
Beedie School of Business
have jointly devoted valuable resources to familiarize business and technology students with basic business concepts, as well as the challenges faced by technology ventures in the modern global economy.
