Global Entrepreneurship Online School

Laurus is adopting courses supplied by EtonX, a British online education company founded by the prestigious Eton College, with original workshops taught by Harvard-educated instructors to create a global entrepreneurship school for Japanese high school students.

EtonX provides Eton’s original educational curriculum as online content to more than 30 countries around the world. In each course, students watch videos and complete assignments. In our custom-made online lessons, they will also engage in role- play and discussion with top-notch Laurus tutors.
