Fellow students of your cohort will be a significant resource for learning, feedback and testing of your thoughts and ideas throughout the programme.
We strive to assemble cohorts consisting of vastly diverse perspectives when it comes to background, expertise, geographic location and so on. However, the cohort is like-minded when it comes to their interest in entrepreneurship. After all, no one understands the joys and pains of entrepreneurship quite like another entrepreneur in the same situation. Peers can offer invaluable outside perspectives and tend to give more pragmatic critique than individuals not familiar with entrepreneurship.
To encourage intense interaction from the start, you will become a member of an action learning team during the first residential week of the programme. Students are carefully matched to an action learning team, and stay a member of that group throughout the programme, offering support to each other.
As the cohort builds their theoretical entrepreneurship knowledge, academic learning is enhanced by discussions amongst peers. These result from different prior experiences and viewpoints of each student, which leads to a rich learning experience for all.
