A transnational project on student entrepreneurship in Romania attracts 200 new students
A recently concluded three-year ESF Romanian-British project has helped shape a Master of Arts programme focusing on entrepreneurship and management. Carried out as a partnership between the Anglia Ruskin University from the UK and two Romanian partners (the National Council of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and the Economics Academy in Bucharest), the ANTREMAN project saw over 200 students enrol for the first year of MA studies. The participants received training from both academics and entrepreneurs.
Furthermore, a student competition called ‘The Big Pitch’ – the brainchild of the Anglia Ruskin University – stimulated the design of 137 new businesses resulting in three groups of students with successful business ideas winning prizes. According to Professor Lester Lloyd-Reason of Anglia Ruskin, the project has had many positive effects, not only for the students but also for the academics involved in it.
