Me & MyBusiness

Me & MyBusiness is a business course entity targeted at upper secondary schools and vocational colleges. Digitalisation, globalisation and technological development have revolutionised economic structures. Therefore, the understanding of global business is increasingly important for the success of our societies. The goal of Me & MyBusiness is to help students learn economics, and entrepreneurial and work skills. They will learn the commercial way of thinking as well as skills needed for operating in an international environment. They adopt key global business education capabilities and future skills.

The story of Me & MyBusiness began in 2015, when TAT wanted to start developing the economic competences and the readiness to learn future work skills of young people. Young entrepreneurs also critically need this kind of competence, since it is challenging to create successful business operations without knowing the fundamentals of commerce. The Me & MyBusiness provides young people with good readiness for further studies and working life regardless of what kind of plans the young person may have for his or her future.
