The training of students and lecturers at Stanford Design School, California started within the frames of the partnership between VFU and BEC, the Bulgarian Entrepreneurship Center.
Stanford University is the world leader in the field of innovation and technology, from where careers of Elon Musk (Tesla), Marissa Mayer (Yahoo), Reed Hastings (Netflix), Evan Spiegel (Snapchat) and many others started.
By the end of 2018, four students and a lecturer from VFU will undergo short-term training at Stanford Design School. The first part of the project aimed at lecturers took place in the period 16-19 July (https://foundationbec.org/blog/?lang=en). The purpose of the training and scholarships that BEC provides is to share experiences, ideas and change amongst the attitudes of their colleagues and their students.
The training of the first group of students begins in September.
This project is part of the partnership initiative between VFU and BEC for launching a new and unique for Bulgaria Master degree programme in Entrepreneurship in which mentors and lecturers from the Silicon Valley will not only train, but will also provide 30 scholarships to selected candidates.
