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 the next Sydney MBA subject will be Leading Innovation and Change which aims to make the participant more aware of the key issues that they will encounter in formulating their organisation’s intrapreneurial, or “corporate entrepreneurship” objectives. It will be facilitated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 4-6 June 2021 at the magnificent Art Deco Primus Hotel in Pitt Street Sydney. The subject will be taught by Adjunct Professor Cyril Jankoff 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. UBSS has now expanded to Melbourne.
