New Business Challenge Summer School Program 2022 for Ghana and Netherlands Students

Deadline: June 3, 2022

Applications are open for the New Business Challenge 2022 Summer School Program. The Summer School is a 5-day program and takes place simultaneously in each country for 24 selected students and young professionals.

The summer school is all about learning interactively about trade relations between the Netherlands and Ghana, existing political agendas and how business is done between the two countries. The program is a combination of on-site and online elements. You will participate in expert talks, meet entrepreneurs, take a company tour and collaborate online in cross-cultural teams to work on a real business case and learn about each other’s (work) culture country. Experienced trainers will lead the program.


  • The NBC includes a summer school and expedition trips to the Netherlands and Ghana. You will learn about business relationships and opportunities between Ghana and the Netherlands, existing policy agendas, brainstorm with entrepreneurs and companies on business solutions, collaborate with students from the other country, benefit from coaching and professional training and will have the opportunity to travel to The Netherlands and Ghana! Travel and accommodation costs are fully covered.


  • Students and beginners from the Netherlands and Ghana can register to participate. They are looking for college students or newbies (or HBOs) who graduated less than 3 years ago.
  • Specific training is not required as long as you are an entrepreneurial and open-minded candidate, able to think independently and motivated to explore business opportunities between the Netherlands and Ghana and likely to be interested in a international career.
  • You must not be over 28 years old.


Register online for the New Business Challenge. You register with your CV and a short motivation where you let them know why you want to participate in NBC 2022 and why you are the ideal candidate for NBC 2022.

Note that registration is not a guarantee to participate in the CNB, as they will receive more registrations than they have available places. Therefore, candidates will be selected.
