JAYE MALTA FOUNDATION
Junior Achievement Young Enterprise (JAYE) Malta Foundation is a member nation of Junior Achievement (JA) Worldwide which represents a global network of non-profit organisations sharing a common mission and purpose to be leaders in the field of enterprise education. JAYE Malta aims to spur economic development through improving young people's understanding of business, economics and entrepreneurship, through a partnership between local business and education communities. Entrepreneurship is a basic skill which needs to be provided through life-long learning. JAYE Malta was founded to educate, empower and inspire young people so that they may transform their futures and achieve entrepreneurial success in a global economy. Such skills and attitudes must be encouraged amongst young people right from the early years of their academic education.
The main objectives of the JAYE Malta's Compulsory Programmes is to bridge the gap between the theoretical and practical implications of business and bring this closer to the students.
The JAYE Malta Tertiary level entrepreneurship teachings will provide the students with specific training on how to start (and run) a business, including the capacity to draft a real business plan and the skills associated with methods of identifying and assessing business opportunities.
