"It should be noted that the rhythm of business has become faster and economic turbulence has increased. In the future, successful entrepreneurs will be the ones who are able to anticipate changes in the business environment and reform their operations in order to remain competitive."
Chairman of the Board of Confederation of Finnish Industries
Entrepreneurship is about changing the world
SKILLOON COURSES In our fast-changing world, students require a variety of skills. They must have a sense of responsibility, self-guidance capacity and the skills to seek new opportunities in job markets. Students need to be creative and active, and cooperative in their approach to studies and their future work life. Fortunately, these skills can be learned. With SKILLOON, an individual student may train an entrepreneurial mindset. It works like a personal trainer for a student. A series of concrete tasks and self-assessments orient students towards working life and developing new businesses. Students implement their personal development portfolio called LOGBOOK, which may be used, for example, as course assignments. With the help of SKILLOON, an individual student learns to regulate her or his future development. This is how the student succeeds in his studies and future working life.
