In the current era of globalization, the role of entrepreneurship is felt to be increasingly important in the development of the national economy. Entrepreneurship is considered effective in improving people’s welfare by contributing to increasing economic growth and equitable economic growth. Entrepreneurship also aims to increase competitiveness, provide jobs and reduce unemployment as well as poverty. The role of universities as institutions for the development of knowledge in this regard is also very much needed. As for being able to give create and form a creative and innovative entrepreneur, it is necessary to start from the educational process by introducing, exploring and developing an entrepreneurial attitude so that later it is hoped that Undiknas graduates can act professionally and think ahead. Globalization and liberalization are a reality, today’s entrepreneurs can no longer avoid the situation and conditions of world free trade, especially if they want to play a big role and compete in the world economy. To face these realities and challenges, it takes a young generation, young entrepreneurs who are resilient and have global competitiveness.
Looking far ahead, there will certainly be many opportunities and challenges, it is hoped that Undiknas students in the future can compete and not be afraid and continue to be determined to move forward by continuing to “pedal the bicycle” when challenges come their way. Likewise, innovative and creative steps must be applied, because only by making various innovative and creative breakthroughs, business success can be achieved.
