Energy Generation has launched the Business & Energy School, the first school in West Africa to train tomorrow’s African leaders in the fields of energy, technological innovation and entrepreneurship.
A customized and innovative entrepreneurial training
Through the BE School, Energy Generation wishes to offer an outstanding training available directly on the African continent to enable young leaders to have a positive impact on the future of Africa through entrepreneurship. At the end of the course, graduates are able to launch a successful start-up with a functional technical solution and an effective business model.
Teaching techniques are based on an individual-centered competence approach. They reflect the logical progression of Design Thinking and an adapted version of the theory of innovation management focused on frugal innovation, which mobilizes few resources for maximum efficiency.
An internationally recognized diploma
The training of BE School was developed in partnership with the French School of Business Ascencia Business School, member of the Collège de Paris. “Present in Africa for several years, particularly in Cameroon and Guinea, the Collège de Paris is honored and pleased to support the training and certification of future sustainable energy entrepreneurs. ” says Olivier de Lagarde, President of the Collège de Paris.
Three courses have been set up, leading to a specific certification registered in the French National Directory of Professional Certifications (NDPC), recognized internationally.
“We strongly believe that knowledge, creativity, leadership and experience are essential for any entrepreneurial success. We have designed a new 2 years- academic program including 16 months of courses and 4 months of internship in a company” says Astria Fataki, founder of Energy Generation.
These programs guarantee our students to enter the labor market by offering trainings in highly demanded job positions:
