Event description
7billionideas presents The Newstead MBA, an intensive and rewarding business programme for students Year 7 - 12

About this Event

In 2018, The Institute for the Future (IFTF) published a report, showing that 85 % of the jobs that will be available in 2030 are yet to be invented. With the rapid growth of new technologies, it's becoming even more pressing to equip young people with skills and experience that will enable them to engage effectively with the new industry. As a response to this, Newstead School is liaising with the international ideas company 7billionideas to advance with our own school business programme for students across all year groups, known as ‘Newstead MBA - Inspiring a Generation’.

This will be launched in partnership with 7billionideas to teach students real business skills - whether or not they want to work within a business and be an 'intrapreneur' or one day start a business and become an 'entrepreneur'. 7billionideas is an international award-winning education company based in the UK that has worked with over 100,000 students and will lead the initiative over the coming years.

The Newstead MBA is built in 3 stages and students will be able to complete each stage over multiple years while at the school.

Stage 1 – Realising Potential Business Course (Year 7 - 8)

During the course, the students will be creating their own startup businesses. They will be taught how to be successful in project management, and how to develop realistic business concepts in order to solve some of the most pressing social or environmental issues at the moment. The course encourages entrepreneurial skills, such as creativity, strategic thinking, initiative-taking. It is also a unique opportunity for our students to engage with professional entrepreneurs, learn more about the possibilities of the industry, and gain confidence in pursuing their own ideas in the future.

Stage 2 – Unleashing Potential Business Course (Year 9 - 10)

During this course, student will be learning about funding methods. Unleashing Potential is an exciting business course for students in Year 9 and 10 where they are introduced to the world of investment, crowdfunding and entrepreneurship. Students will be analysing real businesses on crowdfunding websites, researching every part of them and over the course of the day they will be making a decision as a team on whether or not they would invest in that business. Just like on Dragons Den.

Stage 3 – Reaching Potential Business Course (Year 12)

During this course, students will be working on real life business challenge. They will be asked to develop a group project addressing a real-life business problem of a multi-national firm. The course develops students’ abilities in public speaking, project management, initiative-taking, while working in a business environment. It is also a unique opportunity for our students to gain professional insights of the industry, meet established entrepreneurs and think further about the potential career venues.

The 3 parts to our school MBA programme have been designed to be an invaluable experience for all those who participate. Whether or not your child believes a career in the world of business or industry is for them, we believe every student could benefit from this opportunity.

Each course of the school's MBA programme will cost £40+vat and fees per pupil. The cost covers the fantastic team of facilitators, course content, resources, and certification.

Date: Thursday 19th November 8:45 - 15:30 delivered at the school.

At the end of the course, students will be awarded a certificate that can be included in their future University applications.
