As a higher education institution, PolyU has the resources to cultivate an entrepreneurship mindset and skills for PolyU students, graduates and research staff through various activities and programmes with different focuses and learning objectives:
Formal courses are being offered in a range of academic departments. They are in different disciplines and focus on a range of topics so that interested students can learn the basic concepts of entrepreneurship.
Through Office of Student Development (OSD) and the recently established student-run Entrepreneurship Society, seminars, talks and visit tours are being organised for students who want to further develop their entrepreneurial mindsets and skills as part of their personal development. Study tours have also been organised to Singapore, Beijing and Israel to visit local entrepreneurial related organisations. These have proved to be an eye-opening experience for the students.
