Engaging Indonesian Students to Become Entrepreneurs 

Humber College

Humber’s Sulawesi Economic Development Strategy (SEDS) works alongside seven universities in Indonesia to improve their curriculum and teaching methods in entrepreneurship.

“Before I joined the SEDS workshops, my teaching style was so boring and stiff,” says Basri, a lecturer at the Universitas Muhammadiyah Makassar. “When I learned about the applied teaching methods and started using games, discussions and Brain Colours in class, my students and colleagues marveled at the change!”

The five-year program develops the creative and business skills of students in the classroom, while providing on-campus hubs for students to explore entrepreneurship on their own.

Funded by the Government of Canada and Humber College, the $4.6 CAD million project is improving sustainable management and growth of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and fostering networks among university, government, business and other entrepreneurial stakeholders.
