A course in entrepreneurship is really useful in helping you realise your dreams. It is often said that entrepreneurship can't be taught. But that isn't true. No qualification is going to teach you exactly what to do in order to have a successful business. That is achieved through hard work, being creative, doing a lot of research and having plenty of business skills.
What a course in entrepreneurship teaches you, is how to set up your business properly, how to access funds, how to organise financial structures, how to manage growth, how to form operational and strategic departments. It takes all the learnings (failures and successes) from past entrepreneurs and teaches you how to avoid similar pitfalls, or how to recognise pitfalls and deal with them.
When building a new business, there is no need to make mistakes through ignorance when a course could have helped you along quite easily on your road to success.
