To celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week, 16th-22nd November 2015, Loughborough University’s top-ranking School of Business and Economics is launching an e-learning course for secondary school students (Years 12 & 13):

Innovation and Enterprise: Free six-week e-learning course for 16-18 year olds.

Experts from the School of Business and Economics have developed a degree-level online course aimed specifically at secondary students in Years 12 & 13 which is designed to be completed in five to six weeks.

Students will learn by watching videos, listening to audio, reading articles and engaging with other learners in discussion activities on an online forum.

A suite of inspiring video case studies has been created specifically for this new course, focusing on six Loughborough University graduates who have all recently created successful businesses, for students to learn from.

Students should expect to spend between one and two hours a week on the course. The course can be completed on a mobile, tablet or desktop computer.

Successful completion of the course will also:

  • Enhance a student's CV and university application
  • Prepare students for University studies
  • Give students the opportunity to gain a Loughborough University Certificate of Accomplishment if the required standard is achieved.

The course is free and will start on Monday, 16th November 2015.
