<h1>Entrepreneurship learning opportunities</h1>
<p>In a 2011 study, nearly 60 per cent of OCAD U alumni were self-employed or entrepreneurs and nearly 90 per cent will operate businesses or work as independent contractors at some point in their careers (<em>Strategic National Arts
Alumni Project</em>, 2011).</p>
<p>Whatever your goals or career aspirations, we can help you prepare for self-employment, starting a business or social enterprise.</p>
