The course runs like a conference, with students enjoying an exciting programme of guest speakers and expert lectures.

Future Leaders Entrepreneurship encourages students to explore contemporary skills such as debating, critical thinking, and teamwork. Students work in groups to build a business plan for a social enterprise that will benefit their community.

Students will learn about how to start a business, considering funding and financing as well as writing a business plan. They will pitch their business to a panel of judges on the final day of the course and the best group will win the prestigious Future Leaders Cup.

The course is delivered in English and students will work with others from all over the world using English to communicate and to deliver the end of course presentation. During the course students will develop their business vocabulary and in doing so also improve their English.
