The exciting new two-week programme combines core sessions from business school academics with hands-on sessions from business practitioners and successful entrepreneurs. 

The programme is for current undergraduates, recent graduated, and all aspiring entrepreneurs with a basic understanding of business.

Academic programme

  • core sessions
  • teamwork
  • mentoring sessions
  • panel sessions
  • evening talks
  • contact hours: up to 51 hours

After an introduction to the concept of entrepreneurship, teams of participants will being invited to generate and select simple business ideas. These ideas are then used to underpin the core sessions,  illustrating how aspects of business and entrepreneurship covered during the programme can be applied in real life.

In addition to these sessions, the programme also provides a set of mentoring and coaching sessions where specific issues can be addressed in more detail.

Core Sessions

Sessions will introduce participants to a wide range of key issues and common themes in business and entrepreneurship. All students attend these sessions.


Working successfully in teams is a key skill: teams of participants will be invited to generate and select business ideas. Meeting daily, teams will use these ideas to underpin core sessions. Teams work towards a pitch to a panel of entrepreneurs on the final day of the programme.

Mentoring sessions

Small-group mentoring and coaching sessions early in the programme help teams to consolidate their plans.
