ABOUT

Athletes make great
entrepreneurs

Elite athletes have an outstanding potential to become successful business men and women. In their sporting career, they acquire extraordinary skills that are also crucial to entrepreneurial success:

Many elite athletes want to use their skills, networks and profile to start their own business during or after their sporting career. However, due to their busy schedule, they often miss out on specific education. In this regard, AtLETyC offers elite athletes the opportunity to combine top-class sport and top-level entrepreneurship training.

A new type of dual career approach

Do you think about starting your own business during or after your sporting career?

Do you like to get in touch and network with other elite athletes from all over the world? Do you aim to enhance your Business English skills? Do you fancy a “fresh way” of learning?

If you do, AtLETyC is the perfect choice for you. Upgrade your skills and boost your dual career!

AtLETyC is a pioneering European entrepreneurship training course at postsecondary level. The highly flexible curriculum was commonly designed by elite athletes, dual career experts and academics. A blended learning concept combines custom-tailored online modules with concise on-site workshops.

What is a MOOC?

MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Courses. A MOOC is “an online course designed for large number of participants that can be accessed by anyone anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection, is open to everyone without entry qualifications and offers a full/complete course experience online for free” (Brouns et al., 2014).

The following aspects specifiy the meaning to the elements of a MOOC (Bates 2015):

Massive: designed for in theory unlimited number of participants. This means that the course is designed such that the efforts of all services does not increase significantly as the number of participants increases.
Open: access to the course is free without entry qualifications.
Online: the full course is available through the internet.
Course: the offering is a course, meaning that it offers a complete learning experience, i.e. structured around a set of learning goals in a defined area of study and includes the course materials, quizzes, feedback, examination and certificate of completion.
