The question of how best to educate an upcoming entrepreneur crops up on daily basis.

A good number of people are of the opinion that a business school is the most suitable, thus a pre-requisite. Their opinion stands on the fact that you learn from the teachers or resource persons who are authorities in their field of business. This kind of education will make a budding entrepreneur know the applicable right question and also acquire a standard certification.

Another school of taught is of the opinion that a budding entrepreneur would need general education, the kind that you learn everything you need to know on the job. This kind of education is taught via street smartness, ability to combine multiple actions, working perfectly under pressure, leading people who are more knowledgeable than them, finding answers that are not only right but those that will work. Lastly, generalised education will make one know who and how things will be done better and faster.

The two kinds of education when combined will be the best for the budding entrepreneur of today. Such will make him balanced, a little to the left and a little to the right. Any given real entrepreneur need to know the basic workings of his organization especially those areas that are key to the running of the business. So the much needed education will be the one to make them a pro-active leader who thinks and acts fast as at when due.

A look at the number of entrepreneurs of today shows that many are not whiz kids at school. Also less academics are among the leading business owners of the century. What could make most drop outs better business owners than the whiz kids? They are in business doing what they know how to do. They never based all they know from classroom tutorials, rather school smart prodigies are brought in by them to fix some challenges for a fee and leave as soon as possible. They also back business with passion and fun. One can say that many of them acts on their instincts as the businesses are on course.

The best education for a budding entrepreneur remains learning while on the job. There you will easily know what will work and what will not.
