Egypt, presenting an outstanding project
An alternative, but equally impressive practice, is taking place at the Alexandria University of Egypt, which offers an entrepreneurship course incorporating all components of the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework. A salient feature in this good practice is the comprehensive, yet flexible way in which it is delivered. All higher education students undertake the course to develop the entrepreneurship key competence and at the same time, it is delivered flexibly so that adult learners can benefit. The University Incubator supports in taking promising initiatives forward and obtaining globally recognised industry accreditation.
