Welsh University Becomes Global Centre for Entrepreneurial Development

A Welsh university has cemented its place as a global leader in the research and development of enterprise and entrepreneurship education by becoming home to the globally approved International Institute for Creative Entrepreneurial Development (IICED).

IICED, based at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) in Swansea, Wales, will be an international focal point which brings together a distinguished group of international experts in entrepreneurial education to engage in high-level discussions and to consider global perspectives that can impact, or have impacted, on policy-making. The Institute’s aim is to inform international best practice in enterprise, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial teaching, learning and evaluation.

UWTSD has taken a global lead on innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship education. It has challenged many theories of business education and informed the international entrepreneurial community on approaches for engaging and enhancing creativity in an enterprise context. The University has spearheaded international efforts to find new ways of supporting students and to equip them for the 21st Century working environment, where flexibility and adaptability will be key skills.
