The Origin of Babcock Entrepreneurship Center

The origin of the Babcock Entrepreneurship Centre

The entrepreneurship centre at Babcock University was pioneered by the department of Business Administration and Marketing as an arm of the department to cater for skill acquisitions as well as essential practicals for the course “Entrepreneurship (GEDS 400) hosted by the department. The centre has since inception provided a platform for students to identify and get exposed to a skill of their choice ranging from catering & events management, soap & allied products, creative photography, online/digital marketing, garment/fashion design, hair styling & weaving, film & TV production, and beads making/fascinator. The department of Business Administration and Marketing managed the centre since inception till January 2022 when the BU administration in the bid to making Babcock University an entrepreneurial university expanded the scope to a university program. A director was thus appointed by the university outside the department of Business Administration to achieve this aim.
