“Under My Wing – Supporting Graduate Entrepreneurship” is an EU Funded project under the Leonardo da Vinci Programme – Development of Innovation and represents a new innovation that aims to support the career progression of graduates from non-business related disciplines as entrepreneurs. The project is being led by Meath Partnership in Ireland and the consortium includes partners in Malta, Cyprus, Germany, Spain, Lithuania and Finland.
UMW will design, develop and implement a comprehensive blended learning curriculum that includes:
- A bespoke entrepreneurship curriculum that specifically addresses the needs of graduates
- A business development curriculum that supports the acquisition of a wide range of essential skills
- A pedagogic framework and induction programme that ensures best practice is adhered to by each actor within the partnership model proposed
- A trans-national mentoring framework to support graduate entrepreneurs in their early development years encouraging them to think and act globally in a global economy
UMW will offer a flexible and adaptable business immersion programme placing graduates in vibrant micro-enterprises where they can witness first-hand the diversity of skills necessary to run and manage a business whilst simultaneously developing their own business idea.
