Why are we unique?

Traditional business education teaches you to memorize and repeat theory. We believe there is a better way: learning relevant skills and applying them in the real world. Your education, your business, your career. 

Most educations teach you to survive the present, we empower you to build your future. When you graduate from Team Academy , you’ll leave with 

  • a globally recognized Bachelors’s degree
  • 4 years of work experience and real results (from a business or project you worked on)
  • hours of personal and business coaching and self development
  • an international network of inspiring entrepreneurs
  • unforgettable memories from your travels around the world

Our accredited Bachelor of Business Administration program uses unique methods and tools to help you get a head start as a successful entrepreneur or business person.

Learn inspiring topics like Innovation Leadership, Value Proposition Design, and Building High-Performance Teams, as well as business basics such as Law & Marketing from experienced entrepreneurs and business mentors.

Learning by doing - being an entrepreneur

At Team Academy, you launch your own business or entrepreneurial project during your study. You create real products and services, design your own marketing strategy, work with real clients, and earn real profits, by applying everything you learn into practice immediately. All this while having personal and team coaching, working on your soft skills, learning how to reflect, evaluate, and therefore developing as an all-around human being.

Learning in teams 

Learn in small teams of like-minded entrepreneurs. Participate in workshops and masterclasses, do business, travel the world, and learn and work as a team. Together you’ll improve your communication skills, creativity, support each other, collaborate, and build a lifelong connection.

Learning from the best 

Our students are supported by a team of coaches, business mentors, and field experts. Our staff includes a combination of high-level educators and top professionals and experienced entrepreneurs. We’re proud to have a ratio of 1 staff member to every 3 students.

Learning and traveling 

Every year you’ll travel to different international destinations. Together with your team you’ll explore countries like Romania, South Africa, the USA, and more. You’ll work with local students and companies, build connections for your business, and join a network of creative Team Academy students.

Our philosophy 

We believe that everyone has the potential to do something unique, achieve their goals and contribute something valuable to the world. Not everyone learns, thinks, or works in the same way.

We provide a new way of learning different from the regular school system. Our education is personalized, flexible, and focused on creating tangible results for you and your business. It’s designed to make you creative, a critical thinker, a great communicator, and an experienced all-rounder.

You’ll be ready for every situation in the 21st century.

Selection criteria

We believe in mindset over marks. At Team Academy, you’re given the freedom to define your own learning process, work on your own projects, and discover what you’re passionate about.
