ARPEL4Entrep – Bachelor’s Degree in Entrepreneurship
This project, Accreditation & Recognition of Prior Experience & Learning for Entrepreneurship (ARPEL4Entrep) was launched in September 2020 as an Erasmus+ co-funded project developed by a group of European Higher Educational Institutions and Technical Partners. The scope of the project is to leverage the infrastructure and competencies of the partners in e-learning and the collective expertise and resources of the partners in creating a programme which would encourage entrepreneurs to accredit and recognise their prior experience and learning as part of an online Bachelor’s Degree in Entrepreneurship.
The course is structured to provide a working knowledge of core subjects related to the set-up and smooth running of a dynamic, fast growing SME organisation, not necessarily a business organisation, but also a non-profit or non-governmental organisation. It will help those already running their own businesses or to prepare those eager to start up new businesses or take on top management roles in SME organisations.
The course is ideal for start-up founders, directors, senior executives such as CEOs, business unit managers and executives working within an SME or family business environment.
The online Bachelor’s Degree in Entrepreneurship programme comprises :
Stage 1 – ARPEL process
Stage 2 – Subject course modules: a selection of 8 out of 10 subjects
Stage 3 – Final research project: practical research project to launch or grow the business
