Added value of the ESC®

…for schools

Schools offering individual modules for the Entrepreneur’s Skills Certificate® alongside the regular curriculum benefit from its business, financial and practical relevance. They can use it to enhance their profile and boost their attractiveness. The ESC® Online exams also serve as mock tests for University entry exams.


… for school students and parents

Motivated young people can make use of the provision offered by their school as early as lower secondary level to obtain a basic knowledge of business with the Entrepreneur’s Skills Certificate®. That leads to a positive and entrepreneurial attitude to economic subjects. The Entrepreneur’s Skills Certificate® gives school students a sought-after key qualification: those who have qualified in the modules have an advantage in business and on the job market in comparison to others, be it when applying for a holiday job or a practice placement, entering the world of work or further studies. The certificates represent confirmation of a high level of commitment and independent initiative, a better understanding of business as well as the study of basic national economic and business management relationships.
