YHTYR Entrepreneurship skills/YHTTY Working life skills:
Students demonstrate an ability to manage themselves in an entrepreneur-like way in a customer-oriented group.
Most of the entrepreneur section is implemented in school/department/ or degree programme specific groups. The students are using their own experiences, observations and knowledge acquisition skills, try to find needs and demand for which they develop their own solution (product concept) in their field of expertise.
The few person small groups examine the business potential of their idea and share the ideas of their groups and their chances of success in a larger group.
The ideas are tested by potential customers and will be developed according customer feedback. Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition Creation are main tools in this work. Students acquire basic information on entrepreneurship and profitable business in functional ways. Students test their capacity for entrepreneurship and expend their understanding of their field with cases from corporate life.
