MC taking the lead to build an entrepreneurship education landscape in collaboration with 6 regional academic partners and a multi-sector supportive ecosystem
CEED PH stems from the Capacity Building Program for Entrepreneurship Education (CBP4EE) in the Philippines, led by Miriam College, as the proponent of the 2-year Center of Excellence (COE) Project Grant by the Commission on Higher Education. (CHED)
This Miriam College CBP4EE program initiative is a timely response to the numerous calls from the many years of research foci, conferences, academic experiences of academic institutions in the Philippines and the policy recommendations among member countries of the UNESCO APEID EE Net ASEAN and Asia Pacific Country Meetings since 2014. This CHED MC COE project highlighted the profound value of an evolving “Entrepreneurship Education Discipline, the Educator, and the Enabling Multi-Sector Ecosystem” that encourage and help permeate an “innovative society with an entrepreneurship mindset, values and culture.
The project developed and pilot run a teaching and learning foundation and framework in the Philippines drawn from the regional context, hence, organically grown. This was pivoted to fit the various levels of readiness, professional competencies and leadership roles for publication and use in the regions. Likewise, the project proposed the enhancement and EE program focus to address the needs and opportunities for an agile and evolving entrepreneurial teaching and developmental programs, accordingly. Finally, the project collectively created the CEED PH to continue and sustain the program towards nation building.
