Practical entrepreneurship

Many young people are attracted to the idea of starting and running their own business and more entrepreneurs with good ideas and a strong drive are just what society needs. Entrepreneurship is the key theme in the Economics Programme during your high school years. During the third academic year, your theoretical knowledge is put to the test. Then, together with some schoolmates, you will launch, manage and develop your own enterprise in accordance with the Young Entrepreneurs concept. You will think of a business idea, conduct market analyses and write a business plan for your YE company. You’ll also get venture capital, manage purchases, sales, marketing and everything else that belongs to a real business. In the annual report, you’ll present the accounts of your business.

Many of our students go to business schools, university economics programmes and to further education in industrial economics. It is also common to apply to Berghs School of Communication or the London School of Economics.
