The Global School for Entrepreneurship is a school without a school – they don’t teach in boring classrooms, but in the heart of the community of entrepreneurship. Together with Get in the Ring, the GSE is looking for the most innovative and groundbreaking educational solutions to test, validate and implement in their school around the world.

 

The Global School for Entrepreneurship is revolutionizing the way entrepreneurial education is taught. 75% of its teachers are entrepreneurs who have built successful businesses, and are able to teach students the skills and practicalities needed to become an entrepreneur. In collaboration with the Student Hotel, GSE has a presence in the hottest startup hubs across Europe and invites its students to study and travel the world while building their business.

The Challenge

The Global School of Entrepreneurship is unlike a normal school, not situated in one place at one time. Students and teachers might be living in different areas, and communication will for a large part be online. New ways of learning and interaction open up opportunities to educate future entrepreneurs in a flexible and agile way. The fields of interest include:

Learning management systems

Ways for teacher and students to communicate, administration systems, community based platforms for social interaction (for students & alumni).

Online teaching methods

Ways to increase the efficiency of online teaching and tutoring, tools to provide a customized and real time learning experience, specific course related learning tools.

Gamified learning solutions

Ways to increase the engagement of learning both online and in class rooms.
