Faculty of Entrepreneurship
Welcome to the website of Widya Mandala Surabaya Catholic University’s Faculty of Entrepreneurship…
Advances in technology have contributed to the shift in the number of labor needs. The number of job vacancies and workforce have become increasingly unequal. Therefore, as efforts to reduce open unemployment in Indonesia, job opportunities must be created and the number of workforces must be reduced. One of the ways to achieve these outcomes is by shaping graduates to become independent entrepreneurs who do not depend on work vacancies but instead develop their own businesses and provide chances for others to work by creating job opportunities. WMSCU responds to the challenge of changing workforce needs by establishing a Faculty of Entrepreneurship.
The Faculty of Entrepreneurship was established in 2016 and manages one study program, namely the Entrepreneurship Study Program. The Faculty of Entrepreneurship began carrying out the teaching and learning process in the Odd semester of 2017/2018. The curriculum in the Entrepreneurship Study Program is designed to produce independent, creative and innovative young entrepreneurs.
During the learning process, students create business projects which can be continued as a business when they graduate. It is hoped that graduates of the Faculty of Entrepreneurship are not job seekers, but job providers for themselves and others. The learning process is supported by experienced academic lecturers and practitioner-lecturers who manage their own businesses. Practitioner lecturers will provide assistance in the process of creating students’ business projects through an entrepreneurial mentoring process.
Young people who want to start and run a business independently have the opportunity to join WMSCU’s Faculty of Entrepreneurship and actualize their hopes and desires to become independent, creative and innovative young entrepreneurs. Create, Launch and Grow.
