This event is organised by the British Academy of Management

Description

The aim of this workshop, “Challenges and solutions for mainstreaming enterprise/entrepreneurship education across the university”, is to discuss solutions to the challenges  of ensuring all students have the chance to gain entrepreneurial skills. The economic impact of both the Covid-19 pandemic and the upcoming Brexit indicate more than ever the necessity for businesses to change their strategy and adapt their ways of creating value. Entrepreneurship and the development of an entrepreneurial mindset has never been so important to equip young leaders of the future to be flexible and react quickly to changes in business and society.

Thus, this workshop discusses ways how all students can develop an entrepreneurial mindset and offers examples of successful solutions to the challenges senior university managers and academics might face. These examples come from the various perspectives of our panel speakers here today and of the European Commission.

As the 2020 winner of the British Academy of Management Award for the Experienced Teaching Practitioners, Dr Inge Hill was invited to organise a workshop that discusses her life-long passion and advocacy for developing the entrepreneurial potential.

In Dr Hill’s presentation, “Why embed enterprise/entrepreneurship education across the university – a journey on mainstreaming a citizenship skill”, she is delighted to share insights of her journey and learning since 2002.

Dr Hill is delighted to welcome a panel of leading thinkers, senior Higher Education managers and researchers/policy influencers for this event:
