High School Entrepreneurship Education in Practice: What Makes a Hungarian Bill Gates, Steve Jobs?
How does a nation, a region become an economic powerhouse? What makes a young, talented student a successful entrepreneur, professional, leader?
The answer does not lie behind the GDP numbers, but mainly in the entrepreneurial spirit, knowledge and risk taking attitudes of the young generation. The presentation describes the subject of entrepreneurship education as a crucial factor in economic progress. It gives an overview of the entrepreneurship education landscape of the Carpathian Basin today. Using multiple perspectives it observes the common ways of entrepreneurial skill and competence development.
As a practical example of Central European entrepreneurship education, the presenter will talk about an independent, not-for-profit initiative, the Calasanctius Youth Business Program. The mission of this program is to educate the next generation of young leaders in the Hungarian communities throughout the Carpathian basin. The program aims at providing Hungarian-speaking high school students with knowledge of key ethical business principles, entrepreneurial skills and values that strengthen their ability not only to stay in their homelands, but to successfully develop their communities as well.
These objectives are realized through establishing a network of programs that tightens the personal relationships of our students across borders in the Carpathian basin, develops their Hungarian-American connections, and educates them on key business and professional areas such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, ethical decision making, volunteering, that are immensely valuable in their future success.
