Business Leadership Academy

Create your own enterprise

Live a life of an entrepreneur on this two-week Academy and gain valuable leadership skills. Students will be supported to develop their ideas and practise their business-related English to produce a comprehensive business plan for a new product or service.

Like the famous ‘Dragon’s Den’ show, all students will pitch their business ventures to a panel of judges who will choose the business they would most likely invest in.
