Premise: Poverty persists in the developing countries partly due to the high rate of unemployment and underemployment especially among the youths. This has continued to pose difficult socio-economic problems. Small and medium enterprises play a critical role in the growth and development in the economy of a developing country. The eradication of absolute poverty could be addressed through creation of small and medium enterprises especially with the enormous agricultural and agro-based opportunities in most of the developing countries. However, there are inadequate entrepreneurial and managerial skills among the rural populace, which had often contributed to low enterprise development.

Objectives: This course is designed to develop the knowledge and skills of potential and existing entrepreneurs to generate employment opportunities. At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
  • Describe the process of enterprise development;
  • Identify and develop various small scale investment opportunities in their areas;
  • Determine economically feasible and sustainable enterprises;
  • Formulate the planning, operation and management of small and medium enterprises; and
  • Source and optimize use of funds.
