Drittmittelprojekt IU E³ (Entrepreneurship Education Ecosystem)

Online Pan-African Hybrid Platform


To offer pure entrepreneurship education effectively through formal education is debatable. Often the formal teaching and analysis of the market does prepare the student to create new business which has not been explored and proven, and formal teaching does not reach the informal market. On the other hand, there is also opinion that entrepreneurship can be trained and taught because it is an academic discipline, like any other field. In order to solve such a controversy, it is necessary to establish entrepreneurship education as a system that experts in the relevant field will conduct in a separate field from the major education. However, there is also a gap in the entrepreneurship education depending on the competence of the experts for entrepreneurship education. In order to solve such gaps in education, online education platforms are expected to be needed in entrepreneurship education.

These would need to be developed with the support of local communities, NGO’s, Universities, governments, international organizations and corporations.

The IU E³ Online Hybrid Model, (International University Entrepreneurship Education Ecosystem Online Hybrid Model) in cooperation with UEED (Hochschule-Bonn-Rhein-Sieg), CAREED (University West Scotland), Study Access Alliance Africa, various African Universities, NGOs and other partners is developing and implementing such a model.

This research project aims to show the potential and framework for the theoretical success of the model.
