This program has been developed at Tilburg University in the Netherlands, one of the Faculty of Business and Economics’ exchange partners.
Aimed at students with an entrepreneurial mindset this exciting program provides students the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills, put theory into practice and gain valuable insight into the importance of an entrepreneurial mindset. The program is offered at Tilburg during Melbourne’s semester 1 and would count for credit towards your Bachelor of Commerce degree as part of the exchange program.
The entrepreneurship program has three components: academic subjects, skills training and an entrepreneurship challenge. It would be taken alongside three other commerce subjects as an exchange, which together would count for one semester’s worth of credit to your Melbourne degree. Upon successful completion, students would also be awarded the Certificate in International Entrepreneurship from Tilburg School of Economics and Management.
For further information, please see the brochure and website or contact the Global Mobility Coordinator at email@example.com
Applications should be made to the exchange program as normal, with Tilburg University as your first preference and “Entrepreneurship Program” listed on your study plan.
