The Hotel Windsor
The Universal Business School of Sydney (UBSS) has a strong history of entrepreneurship starting with its founder and CEO, the entrepreneur Alan Manly, and this is reflected in the courses taught at UBSS. One of these courses is the popular Master of Business Administration (MBA) course for those interested in entrepreneurship, either as a self-employed business owner or as an employed “in-house entrepreneur”. The latter is also called an “intrapreneur”, and is a person who uses their entrepreneurial thinking, knowledge, skills and attitudes to create value and generate new revenue growth through entrepreneurial thought and action. Intrapreneurs can also be of great value to governments and not for profit organisations.
UBSS is the country’s seventh largest MBA school and due to the demand it has now expanded to Melbourne. The next Melbourne MBA subject will be Entrepreneurship Research Product which aims to make the entrepreneur or intrapreneur participant more aware of the key strategic issues that they will encounter in formulating their organisation’s objectives. The subject will focus on planning for future success and ways to achieve this using business plans, including the valuable “one page plan”. It will be facilitated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 18-20 June 2021 at the magnificent boom-time Gold Rush Windsor Hotel in Spring Street Melbourne. The subject will be taught by Adjunct Professor Cyril Jankoff, the Melbourne Campus Programs Director, who trained and practiced as an accountant and solicitor and who has spent much of his career advising, teaching and mentoring local and overseas entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. His focus will be on business improvement and he has taught students of all levels both locally and internationally. His doctoral studies included studies into the challenges facing privately owned businesses and how to overcome them.
