the school of business
The School of Business Entrepreneur (TSOBE) program, supported by the Sandals Foundation is an initiative founded as a response to the nation’s increasing unemployement rate and the it’s effect on young people.
The initiative’s ‘Business Enthusiast 101’ course is designed for 15 to 30-year-olds with the hope of encouraging entrepreneurship and instilling values necessary for attaining sustainable success.
Over the span of 20 days, participants engage in comprehensive workshops that cover topics such as financial planning, marketing strategy, business licensing, social responsibility, and customer service, among others.
In the programme’s short lifespan, it has seen unprecedented success.
