What it’s all about


The Enterprise Challenge (TEC) is Edinburgh Napier University’s two-week entrepreneurial exchange programme. It is open to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students across all disciplines. The programme takes place over two weeks – week one being spent in the Technische Hoschule Mittelhessen (THM) in Giessen, Germany, and week two at Edinburgh Napier University Craiglockhart Campus.


The programme will feature a combination of learning and teamwork, with the week in Giessen focusing on business planning, while the week in Edinburgh will be focused on growth issues in business.


The Enterprise Challenge is here to help you build an entrepreneurial mindest and provide you with experience that will be relevant to your life post study – regardless of what you choose to do after graduation. We are firm believers that engaging in this programme during your time at university will give you the confidence and experience required to stand-out from your peers. Not to mention the chance to build lifelong friendships along the way!


If you are an undergraduate, academic credit is also available – more information is available on Moodle – (Module Code: ENT09104).
