What Is Entrepreneurial Education?

Entrepreneurial Education supports students to develop their Capabilities for work and life in a way that values their input, that caters for their diverse needs and interests and – most importantly – allows them to learn by finding and resolving real world problems worth solving. It is a way of educating our students with skills for the future, rather than skills for the past.
