What do students think about HUBS studies?

The course was inspiring and useful. It provided good preparation for entrepreneurial practices and, above all, inspiration for developing one’s own business.

Student feedback
Introduction to Entrepreneurship

Had great teammates. Client was supportive and had good insights and comments given all throughout the process. There were a lot of practical activity and more time on group works and ideation rather than purely theoretical discussion.

The course was great! It wasn’t too long, the questions were thought-provoking, and the content encouraged holistic thinking and growth as a person.
