The Transition Year MBA

In addition to our core consultancy and training services PlanPotential also offers training courses for Transition Year students. Developed in conjunction with Anna Marie O’Dwyer, an experienced Transition Year Co-Ordinator, PlanPotential will come to your school and over the course of a day help your students develop essential business skills. 

These courses apply the best practices from business world and adapt them to the needs of the TY students. At the moment we offer two courses under the brand “TY-MBA” and we hope to expand that based on feedback from teachers and students.

The TY-MBA Team

Business in a Day: Over a day long session we will facilitate your students in coming up with a business idea and developing a “Lean Canvas” for that idea. This session is based on a condensed “hackathon” format with a strong emphasis on the students working in teams to develop their idea. Over the course of the day the teams will take a business idea from concept to an investor style pitching.

Topics covered include:

  • What is Entrepreneurship
  • Growth Mindset
  • Using Design Thinking to avoid bad ideas
  • The Lean Canvas
  • Pitching your business idea.


Business Communication: Over half a day (3 hours) we will cover a range of business communication rules and guidelines that are essential for anyone entering today’s work environment.

Topics covered include:

  • What is business communication.
  • Portraying a professional image
  • Email in business
  • Instant messaging and other collaboration software
  • Social media
  • Presentation skills
