In May 2018, OEP launched an Entrepreneurship Growth Track Program for Tawuniya for local SMEs in Saudi Arabia. The growth track  is offered as a part-time, 10-month business development program designed to give cross-cutting business skills for the entrepreneurs in their field.  The overall focus of the 10-month learning journey was to develop the mindset needed for growth.

The program was adapted to the Saudi market, and it is based on the Finnish Diploma for Entrepreneurs program. It followed the Finnish curriculum and assessment process.

Entrepreneurship Growth Track Program included

  • Mindset development
  • Assignments related to one’s own business and sector
  • Work-based learning
  • Coaching and peer support
  • Hands-on workshops
  • Local and international networking

10 participants received an official Finnish diploma


This qualification program is organized through Tawuniya SME Academy in cooperation with Ejadah Management Consultancy.
