Abstract

Entrepreneurship is on the rise across the globe. Students from all disciplines have become more exposed to the world of business. An aspiring entrepreneur with knowledge of business can ultimately mean the difference between success and failure. However, the lack of business knowledge can leave an entrepreneur with a great idea for a venture lost and unsure of where to begin. This is especially true in industries such as aviation where entrepreneurial undertakings are not only complex but financially out of reach for most.

This poses the question: How do we make entrepreneurship in aviation not only more accessible to students but also place them on a path towards a greater chance of success than with the methods that currently exist?

Implementing business development programs allowing students with interdisciplinary studies to collaborate with their business counterparts and help bring an idea to life could just be the answer.
