Managerial skills are not necessarily genetic and can be achieved by any driven individual(Jones, O., Macpherson, A., & Jayawarna, D. 2014). In addition, effective managerial skills can be learnt through class lectures, independent studies and team works. Being an innovative entrepreneur requires having the ability to convince others about a ventures feasibility, competing for limited resources to found those ventures, dealing with possible opposition towards the project(Bessant, J. & Tidd, J. 2015)..

(Briggs Myers, I.& Myers, P.B. 1980). As a fresher to the New Zealand, I have to improve my knowledge and skills according to the current context. Hence, this course able to transform myself as a innovative managerial level employer.
