Entrepreneur for a day is going to last for almost a full academic year and in the end the young men and women, who worked until the end are going to be as competent as possible in this field of business.

These entrepreneurial education and training will provide youngsters with the ability to recognize commercial opportunities, self‐esteem, knowledge and skills to act on them.

Entrepreneurs or the move towards self‐employment is, and will continue to become, an increasingly important element of economic growth and development. It is essential to have the infrastructure required to facilitate entrepreneurial mind-set and encourage self-employment. More into the program, after they have acquired new abilities into the area of entrepreneurship, they are going to learn on the field by working in some local businesses and this will serve as a future benchmark on our professional life.
Everything that they will learn will be practiced on the everyday life and than they are going to have a true perspective about entrepreneurship and how it really works, and even find themselves, if this form of enterprise is for them and, if they would be successful in the future.
Having a culture of the creation of a new enterprise is a critical aspect of this infrastructure, as it will encourage students to take the risk of starting a business. The purpose of this program is to the design and introduction of the entrepreneurial mindset for these young people.
