Small enterprises are also more nimble and can respond more quickly to changing market needs and can tap on new opportunities. This Minor/Certificate programme is targeted at applicants who have a ready business proposal or a minimum viable product (MVP). This is a key qualifying condition to help ensure that only students who are serious about building a start-up and have a reasonable chance of success are admitted into the Minor/Certificate programme. Students will receive mentorship from industry leaders sourced by Alibaba. Selected applicants are likely to be those who can demonstrate a high potential for achieving a positive impact on society, such as job creation, as well as improving the well-being of society.
