Through a series of interactive workshops, practical tasks and case studies students will learn about some of the most valued businesses in the world and understand what makes them work. Students in this class will be offered the unparalleled opportunity to take part in a world-renowned business programme, used to train leading business professionals, and learn skills that create real impact.
We will show students how they can help solve world issues and create value through business. Students will learn about values-led business and what that really means. They will learn about, and how to use, the business model canvas as well as studying a variety of local and global business types to understand what makes them successful.
The programme covers a wide range of subjects, including marketing, business planning, finance, purpose, values, people and roles, product placement, pricing, selling and how to pitch.
