How long does it take to complete the program?
The program generally takes 8 - 10 weeks to complete. However, it can be completed faster or slower depending on the student's schedule.
Can students 'pause' their program when they have regular school exams?
Yes, absolutely. The program is designed to be flexible to a student's schedule. All their work and progress is saved in a digital briefcase for when they are able to resume their startup journey.
Is the program really 100% online?
All of the learning modules are 100% online, however, approximately half of the learning is done in the real world and away from the computer. Real world discovery away from the computer is an important aspect of the program.
Is the program accredited?
Empowered Startups, the power behind YES Vietnam, is a recognized business incubator by the Government of Canada. University admissions departments have informed us that extracurricular programs like ours are highly valued by them when reviewing new student applications. So, although it is not accredited, it is highly valued by universities and future employers.
What if I don't know which pathway is best for my child or for me as a university student?
We can arrange for a consultation with you as a parent (of a middle or high school student) or as a university student to help decide which pathway, mentored or self-study, is best for you.
