“Entrepreneurial Thinking for Employability (ENTENTE)”
Through a unique, practical curricular design offering entrepreneurial training to two-year technical college students, Project ENTENTE advances their workforce skills in the area of business innovation. Previously, short-term study abroad projects for entrepreneurism have not been offered to underrepresented two-year technical college students to develop their global competency. This new study abroad model can be replicated by other two-year colleges with the goal to enhance global competencies and entrepreneurial skills highly valued in a changing world economy. Students will also be a part of an online ENTENTE Entrepreneurs’ Network to continue sharing knowledge, business, employability tips, cultural competences, and more.
