OEP supports developing thriving entrepreneurship ecosystems by offering programs focusing on
- developing an entrepreneurial mindset,
- setting up a business or
- growing an existing business.
All tracks are recognized by the Finnish National Agency of Education and lead to competency-based diplomas.
Towards successful entrepreneurship
The Diploma for Entrepreneurs has two tracks, the launch track for new entrepreneurs and the growth track for redefining an existing business. The program typically takes 6 – 8 months to complete through part-time study while actively working on building a business.
New generation of entrepreneurs
The entrepreneurial mindset program is designed for 11 – 12th graders as an elective or extracurricular course. The two-semester program is an empowering learning journey sparking interest in entrepreneurship, while building the necessary knowledge, skills and competence to venture into the world of startups.
The two-year full-time StartUp Academy program can be implemented through a partnership contract within an existing school licensed to offer upper secondary education or as a stand-alone learning hub for future entrepreneurs.
