The Arcadia Preparatory School has announced the launch of the region’s first Entrepreneurship programme for primary school pupils, to inspire and teach them the basics of entrepreneurship.

The programme is based on the first year MBA programme and has been designed by the school’s CEO, Navin Valrani, a graduate from two of the world’s leading business schools, The Wharton School of Business and the London Business School.

The Junior MBA will be offered to all pupils from Year 1 upwards and will cover areas such as finance, management, marketing and entrepreneurship. At the end of the programme, pupils will be given an opportunity to present their business ideas in front of their parents.

“The Arcadia Junior MBA is designed to be an integral part of our Enrichment Learning Programme and will offer pupils the opportunity to create their own business plans. An initiative of this nature will plant the early seeds of entrepreneurship in the minds of young children and teach them how businesses can positively impact society,” said Navin Valrani, CEO of The Arcadia Preparatory School.

“Someday these ideas may even turn out to be real businesses for Arcadia’s pupils. We look forward to doing our bit in inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs,” he added.

Arcadia’s Junior MBA enhances the school’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence programme and gives pupils an opportunity to learn from Valrani’s experience, serving as an Executive Board member for The Wharton School as well as member of the International Alumni Council of London Business School.
