Business Management, Entrepreneurship and New Technologies Certification


This course is especially adapted to those students who dream of opening their own business one day and who want to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Students also understand the impact of new technology in our world and the power of exponential growth.


Students will be able to learn and gain exposure to valuable material in lectures and to apply it in a business or non- profit organization once graduated. Many students may also opt to take a gap year and study this course in order to gain a more in- depth insight into the topics offered.


Throughout the course, students are encouraged to build plans on how they see challenges, at local or regional level, and what needs to transpire in order for these challenges to be addressed and solved. Once reviewed by the panel, students will be given Tier 1 or Tier 2 status that will see a valid company being registered, appointed as a director on that company, develop the entity further for commercial viability and receive ongoing mentorship by top directors until such time that the newly formed idea has matured into a firm business plan ready for funding.


The course equips students with the skills to effectively communicate with scientists, engineers and business leaders, whilst themselves not needing to understand the depths of content of those disciplines. The course also covers creative and critical thinking as well as emotional and social intelligence introducing students to a wider range of relevant topics and subjects that impact on day to day inter-personal interaction.
