The Young Business Leader Programme

The Young Business Leader Programme

London • Ages 15-18

17th November 2019
University College, London

The Young Business Leader Programme is an all-encompassing one-day immersion into life as a global business leader, designed for students aged 15-18. You will be coached through a series of interactive role plays, seminars, case studies, and Q&A sessions by a group of talented entrepreneurs and corporate executives from major sectors such as retail, manufacturing and technology. You will gain both the hard business skills you need to succeed: how to build, market and finance a global brand, AND the soft skills that make the difference: negotiation, persuasion and networking.

This holistic experience of life as an entrepreneur will be a fantastic addition to your UCAS form, and the skills gained will give you a competitive edge when applying for the most sought-after graduate roles.
