This entrepreneurship course is designed to help graduates in establishing their own studio-based jewellery business. Registering a business, accounting and taxes, pricing (for wholesale, retail and custom jewellery markets), sourcing wholesale materials and services, and marketing are all topics included in this course. Students not intending to start their own businesses will benefit by gaining knowledge of the jewellery business and the diverse specialized areas where they may be employed. Visits to local businesses and presentations by guest speakers deepen students’ understanding and help them to forge connections within the jewellery industry.
