University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN)

The academic content of The Entreprenuer Programme was developed in collaboration with the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) Graduate School of Business and Leadership, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as part of the CREATE Programme.

Under the academic guidance of these institutions, the content of workshops forming part of The Entrepreneur Programme is based on Dr Alexander Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas as a means for finalists to interrogate their businesses.

The academic content is reviewed on an annual basis and a representative from UKZN is a member of the Programme’s Steering Committee. 

The Entrepreneur Programme is an accredited UKZN Graduate School of Business and Leadership Short Course (NVQ level 5).
