Develop curriculum outline NB The Curriculum we're developing is intended for a full-fledged program which will enable any potential or actual entrepreneur to develop the skills and knowledge to be able to effectively and efficiently manage his/her enterprise. There are no limits to the size of the entreprise - our only wish being that with the help of this programme, the entrepreneur evolves positively and knowledgeably.

The different units can be used as and when required or the learner can eventually follow the programme as it has been designed. For any additional support, please contact the institution...etc..
