5 platforms that can help develop students’ entrepreneurial skills
Our education system has always aspired to empower young people to build successful and inspiring careers. In today’s world, students must be prepared for the challenges that will arise in the future and therefore must have a thorough knowledge of their chosen discipline. They must possess problem-solving skills, team spirit, leadership qualities and an ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment.
Indeed, these skills are the keystones of entrepreneurship. Therefore, alongside traditional subjects like science, math, and social studies that provide foundational knowledge, it is essential that students also learn entrepreneurship skills early on.
