Entrepreneurship development in Algeria


In May, teams from three Algerian universities developed a more entrepreneurial mission, vision statement and strategy for their institutions, facilitated by Entrepreneurial Universities expert Dr. Huub Mudde from Maastricht School of Management (MSM) – Maastricht University.

This was part of a project funded by RVO, in which MSM is strengthening the entrepreneurship capacities of the University of Oran 1, the University of Oran 2, and ESAA (l’Ecole Supérieure Algérienne des Affaires).

Framed within a more entrepreneurial strategy, the three universities will be supported by MSM to strengthen their entrepreneurship education, in particular implementing the new government regulation of 1 degree – 1 start-up. This implies that it is expected that university graduates will be supported by their university to not only graduate successfully, but also to start-up their business. In addition, MSM will help the universities to set up an incubation program.

The project is part of the Netherlands support to Algeria in creating employment for youth, by developing entrepreneurship programs that can improve the entrepreneurial mindset of students.
