Energy Generation, a Pan-African organization that aims to encourage young Africans to meet the most urgent challenges of their generation through entrepreneurship and technology, has partnered with West Africa-based Business & Energy School (BE School) in order to carry out its mandate in Accra, Ghana and Lomé, Togo.
Through the BE School, Energy Generation will offer 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.
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,” said 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,” commented Founder of Energy Generation, Astria Fataki.
These programs guarantee our students to enter the labor market by offering trainings in highly demanded job positions.
With students from all over Africa, the teaching content is offered in a bilingual format (in French on the Lomé campus and in English on the Accra campus). The pre-registrations have already been launched for the new academic year starting on October 7th, 2019.
