GRTU’s collaboration with MCAST to promote Entrepreneurship

GRTU has recently embarked on a joint pilot project with MCAST to raise the level of Entrepreneurship in accross the board within the project.
 
In November, GRTU launched the campaign ‘Be your own Boss’ an outreach exercise that targeted MCAST students. As part of this activity GRTU invited various representatives from the business community to exchange their views and experience with the students. The aim of this action is to highlight the skills and capabilities needed to successful establish and operate
a business.
GRTU believes that to truly learn entrepreneurship, apart from curricular activities, student must be inspired and exposed to the spirit of entrepreneurship itself. Throught this exercise students heard stories of how a diverse range of business sectors were set up, directly from the individuals that started the businesses. This included the challenges and joys of being in business.
 
GRTU has also established a skills council made up of entrepreneurs that are able to meet with MCAST representatives to analyse the institute’s business courses and determine the changes that need to be made for the modules to truely reflect the current business environment.
 
This pilot project was carried out on the BA (Hons) in Business Enterprise. During this session a number of aspects were identified that could potentially increase the occupational standards in the industry. The exercise will be followed with other meetings targeting different courses within the institutes.
 
GRTU also plans to continue the outreach exercise to promote entrepreneurship amongst students that have the potential to become prospective entrepreneurs.
