“We do not teach entrepreneurship, we train impact entrepreneurs”
The Global MBA in Impact Entrepreneurship (MBA) is a postgraduate program that guides aspiring entrepreneurs, start uppers and corporate managers in developing and scaling up entrepreneurial projects and businesses.
The program is designed by the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan (UCSC), promoted by the E4Impact Foundation and executed by a series of Partner Universities in Africa.
The Global MBA, with its project-based approach and its blended formula (both in-presence and online sessions), offers unique opportunities that make it different from traditional MBAs: it supports entrepreneurs in innovating their business model and in expanding their activities through the use of innovative tools, training and coaching sessions, pitch competitions and networking events with experts and investors.
During the program, the participants have the chance to pitch their business to a jury of investors, who provide high-quality feedbacks on the financial viability of their project and give them advice on how to receive investment. For each MBA, E4Impact establishes some Partnership Facilities with the business development service providers and develops Key Investment Partnerships with local and international investors.
Investors are committed to deliver dedicated sessions on investment readiness, reviewing students’ business plans and opening investments opportunities for the alumni.
Moreover, our entrepreneurs are immediately invited to join the E4Impact Digital Entrepreneurship Ecosystem, which includes integrated digital platforms designed to enable entrepreneurs to create business opportunities locally and globally, make online sales, and better manage their companies. Specifically, they have the opportunity to communicate with a pan-African community of 6000 entrepreneurs through lifetime access to a B2B digital platform, and restructure their internal system with digital blockchain technologies.
The Global MBA trains active entrepreneurs who are ready to generate economic, social and environmental impact in their societies: this is why it is NOT a program for job seekers, but for job creators.
