At Global School for Entrepreneurship, we stimulate students to think, decide and act as entrepreneurs. We give entrepreneurship the attention it deserves. Many universities offer entrepreneurship as an add-on to their program. Some through hands-on minors, others by touching on popular tools such as the business model canvas. Our program takes a radically different approach. We aim to develop Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs. Professionals with an entrepreneurial mindset, who feel comfortable in unpredictable environments.
We challenge, inspire and facilitate students to become an entrepreneur by being one. Our five-week modules provide students with practical learning methods and the latest knowledge from the field to develop entrepreneurial competencies. As Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs you have to be effective in dealing with unpredictability and become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Entrepreneurship is not something you learn by reading a book. It demands learning through application; therefore, we are proud to be a fully accredited University of Applied Science with a cutting-edge curriculum not just about entrepreneurs, but by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Our modules are designed to help you build your startup and are therefore timed to meet your development needs, making it helpful to students focused on becoming architects of their own lives.
That is why the fully accredited Global School for Entrepreneurship focuses on applied sciences. We see entrepreneurship as a way to shape your own destiny and make a meaningful contribution to society. The only way to learn how to do this is by doing the work and actually starting your business.
Our program puts your business development first. You don’t have to wait four years to put your knowledge into practice, in our program you do it from day one. Each block consists of one module, which focuses on a specific topic. The entire curriculum follows this structure and is designed in such a way that all modules follow the process of building your business. From ideation to validation to scaling, the program covers it all.
Between the modules, we offer incubation time. The incubator is an essential part of our program because in here, you’ll receive personal coaching and mentorship to help you apply the lessons learned during the modules immediately into your own startup.
And as an added bonus: it fits within the framework of accreditation, which means your degree is fully accredited by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO). So even if you want to gain more experience by working at another company, your bachelor is just as competitive with all Business Administration degrees

Each module is created along four learning lines intertwined throughout the four-year program.
1. Personal Development
The first focuses on developing the entrepreneur on a personal level focusing on developing competencies such as assertiveness, creativity, perseverance, persuasiveness, and adaptability.
2. Methodological Learning
The methodological learning line is focused on discovering opportunities for the entrepreneur and the business. The related skills are critical thinking, problem analysis, customer orientation, vision development, and value creation.
3. Interpersonal Learning
The interpersonal learning line aims to develop competencies that help develop relevance in the market and become a good leader. The skills developed throughout are the leadership of groups, social awareness, curiosity, cooperation, and networking.
To ensure that the entrepreneur is capable of coming up with concepts and developing them, the final skills concern developing the Effectuation mindset, learning ability, business orientation, and commercial power, as well as verbal expression.
Graduates from our bachelor program are capable of developing a vision, discovering the opportunities by making the offer relevant to the customer, and persevering when it gets difficult in order to achieve success, they get the job done.
Each group (of max 23 students) has their own learning coach who challenges them, inspires them, and understands them. They recognize when times are tough and they want to share their success, such as their first signed deal.
