Doha College held an Entrepreneurship Day in its primary school, giving students an insight into how the marketplace functions and understand the financial principles of business management. The British International school joined forces with INJAZ Qatar, an organisation that partners together with the local business community, corporate volunteers and educators to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy, to deliver the event. 

Creativity, enterprise and negotiation were a few skills that shone through during the day when students had the opportunity to design, price and market their very own products. Entries were critiqued on product name and logo; the advertising poster design; creativity; presentation and the financial statement, a process which helped ignite an entrepreneurial spirit in the budding participants.

Raymond Obeid, Director of Projects and Head of Entrepreneurship Department at INJAZ Qatar, shared his impressions about working with the students: “We were honoured to deliver an “Entrepreneurship Masterclass” to the outstanding students of Doha College. They were interactive when introduced to entrepreneurial concepts and were very creative with the challenge given to them. It was a great learning experience, and the success of the event was due to the efforts of the teachers and volunteers who ran the presentations and mentored the students”.

In the Secondary School, Doha College offers GCSEs in Business Studies and Economics, and A Levels in Business and Economics, Travel and Tourism. To find out more, visit www.dohacollege.com.
