Y-Portfolio is a way to bring your practical experience about entrepreneurship and working skills to be part of your curriculum (1-20 ects).
The objective is to build entrepreneurial competences in real life setting. You will create a personalized plan on how to gain knowledge and document the results. The plan is reviewed with the coach before starting the assignment. The way how you will document the outcomes is also agreed with the coach.
Relevant examples of such a practical experience are for example developing a business idea or existing business, volunteering to work in an entrepreneurial association or training program related to entrepreneurship or working life skills (e.g. accelerator etc.)
NOTICE – SUMMER BREAK 2021
You can work on your Y-portfolio during the summer. However it’s good to know that due to the holiday season, the registration of study credits is on a break during 25.6.-9.8.2021. So worry you not, your credits are on the way – we’ll get back to it in August!
The content of this course is tailored individually with you and will be based on your personal learning targets. This is done together with a coach.
