startAD - NYUAD

At Bloom, we're dedicated to empowering individuals and organizations with the skills and insights needed to thrive in today's dynamic environment. Our online and hybrid programs are crafted to provide you with practical skills and actionable insights, leveraging the latest in our own methods, the EU's EntreComp standards, and other quantified learning methodologies.

Here at Bloom we leverage entrepreneurship both as an outcome-oriented process (helping people launch and grow enterprises and impact-oriented organizations) and as a practical project-based learning methodology (helping people develop their skills and strengths).

These approaches can be adapted to support educational programs, accelerators, corporate learning & development, employability and future of work programs, and impact-oriented capacity building programs.

We're dedicated to empowering individuals and organizations with the skills, tools and insights needed to thrive in today's dynamic environment. If you're an educator or institution looking to partner with us on delivering cutting-edge entrepreneurship education, explore our partnerships page.

Industry Alignment & Skills Development

Bloom's education programs go beyond knowledge transfer – we help you align with the future of work. Our focus on the critical skills that employers seek (and often find lacking) is illustrated in our alignment with the EU's EntreComp framework, the UAE's Centennial Vision, and other global standards and best practices. But more than aligning with, we're innovating new approaches to help deliver on those frameworks more effectively, and at scale.

The graph below highlights the skills gap between employer expectations and recent graduate capabilities. At Bloom, we bridge this divide with targeted training and practical learning experiences designed to elevate these crucial competencies.

Bloom addresses a wide range of essential skills needed by today's workforce. Our approach combines individual growth assessments, a comprehensive library of activities, and a tailored program methodology to develop competencies in critical areas like problem-solving, creativity, digital design, reasoning, and analytical thinking.

Additionally, Bloom's project-based learning programs specifically target communication and collaboration skills, ensuring our learners excel in these crucial areas for teamwork and navigating the professional landscape.
