What is a Junior Enterprise?
The concept of the Junior Enterprises “JE” movement aims to provide undergraduate and graduate students of higher education with unique learn by doing experiences.
While still studying at universities, students create and manage their own non-profit small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This would allow them to be prepared for the corporate world and to learn by doing as they will be implementing and delivering several types of services related to their fields of studies.
