AUB’s Innovation team works closely with the Employability team to create a programme to support graduates developing the skills they need to have a successful career including starting their own business or being a freelancer.
Entrepreneurship Skills WorkshopS
Run in conjunction with Sam Howell Consultants, our workshops bring people with established businesses to talk about their struggles, failures and successes to help the next generation create their own business.
Each workshop is themed around a topic and there is space and time for one on one and group discussions. AUB students can approach Sam Howell for free individual consultations.
