One of the world’s most diffused models of entrepreneurship education comes from Jyväskylä in Finland. A city with a population slightly above 100.000, it is the birthplace of Team Academy, a Finnish educational concept centered around letting students run a class-wide enterprise for three and a halv years. Team Academy has been emulated in more than 10 countries, mainly in Europe but also in South America, Asia and Africa (see more here).
According to a research article about Team Academy in Management Learning (here), the underpinning idea of Team Academy is called team learning, as defined by Peter Senge as ‘the process of aligning and developing the capacity of a team to create the results its members truly desire’ (Senge, 1990:236).
Below is shown a picture of the Team Academy global network so far.
