This minor has been deemed to be relevant especially for the International Business Administration students as despite being the tourist hub for Indonesia, Bali has also been well known and recognised as a creative hub. Entrepreneurs from all over the world have come to bali and experimented, strived to do things a bit differently. Instead of unwinding in the beautiful surroundings, entrepreneurs are opting to plug into the island’s emerging start-up scene because of a thriving start-up ecosystem, low overheads and of course, the allure of beautiful surroundings.
With the rapid shift in remote working and entrepreneurial hubs popping up all over, Bali has quickly become a fascinating place for start-up’s, especially regarding online services and social causes. During the course of this minor, students entrepreneurially ‘create’ their own excursions, get the chance to come up with their own business concepts, by working with an organisation such as Hubud so that they may sun a business simulation.
