Student Showcase: Students as Leaders of Learning and Growth Experience around Entrepreneurship at Universidad del Rosario

This presentation is an example of how one of the best universities in Colombia empowers students to be the protagonists of training as leaders and entrepreneurs. To address the issue, an introduction is made to the general situation of entrepreneurship in Colombia and how universities are responding to this need. In the student’s voice, it is shown how Universidad del Rosario empowers students in the educational process. He himself exposes the activities he has led as a student and how this has contributed to his growth as a leader in the entrepreneurship field. The presentation proposes that the process of leadership training should not depend solely on directives and teachers, it should empower students and give them some tools so that they are the protagonists and multipliers of these issues. Students are the drivers of change and should be the ones who propose and develop the activities in universities as leaders, facing the challenges and difficulties that this demands. The presentation is made as a short 15-minute conference in which the case is presented as an example of good practice in “The Art of developing entrepreneurial leaders”.
