I discovered early on that entrepreneurship was my passion. I picked Entrepreneurship Academy as my faculty option because I was aware that only a faculty that puts accent on practice more than on theory can be relevant in the business field. Looking back to the 4 years of studies, I strongly believe E.A. was instrumental to my development both as a person and as an entrepreneur. It is fascinating how much all the courses, Learning Journeys, colleagues and business experts around the community have contributed to who I am today! As the faculty ends, I am currently the founder of Flip.ro, an investment backed marketplace that recently exceeded 280,000 euros in revenues.

Choosing to study at The Entrepreneurship Academy has been one of the best decisions I ever made when I was 18. I was and still am keen on always finding myself on a steep learning curve, both from a theoretical and practical point of view. After four challenging years, full of experiences that enabled me to grow on personal and professional level, depression and joy, courses and business, I discovered what I am really passionate about. That is, building impact startups with passionate individuals. If you are ready to start the journey of your entrepreneurial life and have real impact on what matters for you, EA is the right call! :)

Year I Student

I knew I wanted to be my own boss so I was always a bit skeptical about the educational system that teaches you how to be a good employee. Having this in mind, I decided to go study art in France, a field I am passionate about in a country I like. I did this because I was thinking that entrepreneurship it’s a self-taught profession for which I don’t need an educational backround - so if I choose to study something, I might as well study something I am passionate about. While in France I started my first real entrepreneurial project, an e-commerce platform. Sooner or later I realised the importance of having a business education if you want to be an entrepreneur, so I decided to come back to Romania and join EA, a new and innovative university. And I don’t regret it :)

I have chosen this University for the sole reason that I thought that being around this community for the next 4 years will be much more valuable than any University in Romania or abroad. Along with these awesome people that I met, I have created experiences of all kinds that helped me grow on personal and business levels. For me, it is all about people, and I found here the right ones. They challenged, taught, and guided me towards the person I am today.

The Entrepreneruship Academy made me who I am today. This faculty helped me in learning how to grow day by day, to create a network of highly intelligent and skilled people, to gain self-confidence and develop a business with the best team I could ever imagine. I came to the conclusion that this faculty was the best decision I ever made in the last four years for my personal development. After four years of being a student at EA, I find myself as the co-founder of Difrnt agency, a digital services provider for relentless businesses, that generated over 250.000 euro in revenues in the last 2 years.

All the knowledge that I needed in order to start and serve more than 5000+ clients comes from The Entrepreneurship Academy’s courses, team-sessions, experts sessions, networking opportunities, events, coaching, learning journeys and the way I was encouraged to apply things in real life. Looking back, after 3 years of being a student at EA, I believe that joining this faculty was one of the best decisions I took in my life.

I went to Computer Science College in the Netherlands. I stayed there for a year, and then I decided to come back to Romania and applied to EA. I was very attracted to the way we learn here. The educational program is established alongside the students, and each course is specially created based on the needs we have in business at the time of the course. For example, in year 1 we were learning about the legislation and the process of opening an SRL - exactly when we open our companies, and the idea of​​learning by doing is very well implemented in our faculty.

At The Entrepreneurship Academy, I had the opportunity to find out what entrepreneurship really means, primarily through practice, but also from experts and entrepreneurs. I worked on various entrepreneurial projects and discovered new areas from which I learned and still learn a lot. Mostly, I like that we are not limited to business discussions, but we found and worked on our own businesses, and we can directly apply all the theory learned in courses directly. In addition, we have a community of experts and mentors who are always open to helping and guiding us.

Frequently
asked questions

Students have ownership in deciding what business ideas they want to implement and what initial capital they need to invest. Therefore, raising that investment is their responsibility. If they want to start big, they might want to apply for funding or look for investors, and even put their own capital into the business.

Students own their businesses. They are the ones who create a legal company for running their business ideas. It’s their choice to decide who to make business with, and to establish the legal participation and ownership of the team members within their company.

They remain in their ownership. If there are members who wish to retire or others who want to join, it’s again the team’s responsibility to make the necessary changes form the legal point of view.

The mentors are meant to guide the progress of the business, with the objective of creating context for progress in a sustainable way. They meet with students progressively starting with year one and increasing the number and time of interactions as students pass into the next years. In the year III, and semester one of year IV, the students meet the business mentors every week.
