FROM stalls selling food, drinks and fashion wear, to a pet show, horse riding, bowling and various other activities, there is certainly something for everyone at the Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali’s (UNISSA) Entrepreneurship Day held over the weekend.

The event, aimed at encouraging youth to delve into the world of entrepreneurship, was officially launched by Dr Haji Norarfan bin Haji Zainal, Rector of UNISSA, and attended by the university’s lecturers, deputy deans and deputy directors, officers, undergraduates and members of the UNISSA community.

After participating in a ribbon cutting ceremony, Dr Haji Norarfan proceeded to tour the various stalls at the event.

Dr Abdul Nasir bin Haji Abdul Rani, Dean of the Faculty of Islamic Economics and Finance at UNISSA, said that Entrepreneurship Day is part of UNISSA’s efforts to imbue “an entrepreneurial mindset” among the university’s undergraduates.

The event, organised by the Faculty of Islamic Economics and Finance, runs from April 7 – 8 and is open from 8am to 5pm.

It features 21 stalls set up by 60 entrepreneurs from the UNISSA community sprawled out across three locations within the university: the auditorium, gymnasium and zone C car park.

Also featuring in the event is the university’s Entrepreneurship Project involving Year 4 students of the Faculty of Islamic Economics and Finance.

The project saw the students exercising their creative talents and making their own products based on the Islamic concept of business.
