Program Overview

Program Description:

The creation of new ventures is one of the most important economic issues of our time, throughout the world. This means not only start-ups, but also the development of new activities by existing firms and spin-offs by universities, company expansions and takeovers. This course follows a sustainable entrepreneurship approach, dealing with all the economic, social and ecological aspects of new ventures.

Much of the precise content is determined by the students themselves, who are expected to come up with their own business ideas and contributions. After morning lectures on such topics as the start-up process, the business model canvas, entrepreneurial competencies and enterprising behaviour, in the afternoons and evenings you work on practical assignments with support from outside experts. The course ends with the presentation of your assignment report in a Dragon’s Den setting.

Cost:
