Euro-Mediterranean School 2009 Open For Entrepreneurs’ Applications

By Startup Arabia

The Euro-Mediterranean School (EMS), which is an initiative that aims to offer young entrepreneurs from the Euromed countries an opportunity to follow a learning program in the field of business management and entrepreneurship, has opened up applications for the fourth “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” course taking place this year.

EMS was founded by the Milan Chamber of Commerce, the Lombardy Region, and the Fondazione per la Sussidiarietà (’Foundation for Subsidiarity’). These sponsoring bodies offer full scholarships to all participants covering travel costs, room and board, tuition fee and teaching materials for the entire duration of the course.

EMS 2009 aims to offer young entrepreneurs and managers from the countries bordering on the Mediterranean Sea an opportunity to obtain the entrepreneurial and managerial skills necessary to start and/or develop a business capable of operating in multiple markets within the Mediterranean Basin.

The EMS 2009 is divided into two principal phases, both taught in English:

Phase A: Distance Learning, which consists of an online course entitled ”Business Strategy, International Growth and the business plan” which is compatible with everyone’s work responsibilities.

Phase B: Business education and Networking, where the top 20 students shall be invited to spend 4 weeks in Milan, Italy to continue their course and have an internship.

The 4th edition of the Euro-Mediterranean School – EMS 2009 is planned to run from October 2009 to February 2010. The deadline for application submissions is September 15th 2009.
