YEDI’s Academic Expansion
After being recognized as the #1 university linked business accelerator in the world, YEDI was contacted by several Canadian and international universities who expressed interest in having YEDI programming at their respective schools. Currently, YEDI is working with 5 Canadian universities and 10 international universities to make this a reality in the near future.
Most notably, Russian University of Economics, which is the country’s oldest and largest economics university, created a new department within their university to add YEDI’s programming. The department of Global Finance and Small Business Development by York Entrepreneurship Development Institute (Canada), will deliver YEDI’s content to both local and international entrepreneurs.
YEDI believes that academia has no borders and is proud to envision a future where business leaders from both Canada and Russia who complete YEDI’s programming will better understand each other and help each other flourish in a global economy.
