Doha College held an Entrepreneurship Day at its primary school recently, giving students an insight into how the marketplace functions and allow the students to understand the financial principles of business management.
The school joined forces with INJAZ Qatar, an organisation that partners with the local business community, corporate volunteers and educators, to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy.
Creativity, enterprise and negotiation shone through during the day when students had the opportunity to design, price and market their own products. Entries were critiqued on the following factors: product name and logo; advertising poster design; creativity; presentation; and financial statement – a process which helped ignite an entrepreneurial spirit in the budding participants.
Raymond Obeid, Director of Projects and Head of Entrepreneurship Department at INJAZ Qatar, shared his impressions about working with students of Doha College and how they were honoured to deliver an ‘Entrepreneurship Masterclass’. He said the students were very much ‘interactive’ when introduced to entrepreneurial concepts and were very creative with the challenge given to them.
It was a great learning experience, and the success of the event was due to the efforts of teachers and volunteers who ran the presentations and mentored the students.’
Doha College offers GCSE in Business Studies and Economics, and A Levels in Business and Economics, Travel and Tourism for its Secondary Level. To find out more, visit their website at dohacollege.com.
