About the Programme
The students found and run a real enterprise. They learn how the business world works and what role entrepreneurship plays in our society. Each participant takes on a function in her/his own mini-enterprise and carries out her/his tasks for the duration of the programme year. Products or services are developed and produced and finally sold on the market through sales activities. The mini-enterprises are accompanied by YES Programme Managers and teachers. More information

«Nothing is impossible! That is probably the most important lesson I learned from the Company Programme. A year ago, I would have never dared to tackle something like this. In the meantime, I know that even a humble student like me can be a CEO.» - Beat Bannwart, former mini-entrepreneur
