15 Struggles You Face If You Study Entrepreneurship at University
If you chose to study Entrepreneurship at university, there’s a strong chance you have faced some of these struggles at least once.
1. For a start, it’s an actual nightmare to spell.
The worst part about studying for entrepreneurship is having to spell out entrepreneurship over and over

2. And it doesn’t seem to get any easier.
Been studying Entrepreneurship for a year now and I still have troubles spelling the word #fail

3. Constantly being asked what a degree in Entrepreneurship actually is.
Someone asked "what is entrepreneurship". Go home

4. And then realising you’re not really sure how to explain it.
5. Everyone expects you to start a business before you’ve graduated.
Or at least have one ready to start up.
6. Before judging you when you reveal that this is not the case.
Spent one whole semester studying basic entrepreneurship and I don't know how to start a business, still.

7. Because no one understands that you’re only learning the theory about starting a business, not How-To steps.
8. Trying to get your head around accounting becomes the bane of your life.
I would genuinely feel ok about the rest of my exams if I didn't have to take this awful Accounting module that I don't understand 😭

9. And learning about social, habitual, and novice entrepreneurs is more stress than you signed up for.
So. Much. Theory.
10. It doesn’t help that you end up studying a lot of entrepreneurs who, funnily enough, didn’t study entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship is a strange major because you spend the whole time studying guys who didn't bother spending $3k/course before they hit.

11. Researching for assignments is hell because very little research has been done on a lot of the topics.
12. And you often feel as though you’ll never make sense of marketing case studies.
13. People always assume that your degree will make it possible for you to get literally any job.
14. But the truth is that it applies to so many things it’s almost impossible to narrow down what you want to do.
15. And more often than not you end up wondering if maybe you should just go on Dragon’s Den instead.
When you watch dragon's den in the background while you study for entrepreneurship but then get more interested in the show than studying
