WISE and Qatar University Host Entrepreneurship Education Workshop

The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) recently partnered with Qatar University (QU) to present a workshop entitled ‘Global Entrepreneurship Education’.
Hosted by the Center for Entrepreneurship at QU, the event featured a panel discussion followed by an interactive ‘World Café’ style workshop, which presented participants with the opportunity to interact with others, share unique experiences, and explore ways to support entrepreneurial thinking and action.

The event reinforced the publication of a 2015 WISE Research Report, titled ‘Entrepreneurship Education: A Global Consideration from Practice to Policy Around the World’, produced by a team from Babson College in the United States. The report also included contributions from Qatar University, the Finnish Lifelong Learning Foundation, and Tsinghua University in China.

Welcoming the participants, Dr. Asmaa Al-Fadala, Director of Research at WISE, said that the workshop evolved from a strategy at WISE to focus “more on policy research that is both globally significant and locally relevant.”

Dr. Al-Fadala also noted that the WISE research on entrepreneurship education emphasized “the importance of bringing the entrepreneurial mindset to young people, as well as creating life skills that can be useful in a wide variety of circumstances and contexts.” Dr. Al-Fadala concluded by thanking Qatar University and the invaluable collaborating international entities that helped to design and organize the event.
