Entrepreneurship Studies

Entrepreneurship Studies is divided into three courses which cover everything from entrepreneurial skills to business models.

Toward entrepreneurial mindsets

Focuses on competence clarification for students who want to explore their talents and entrepreneurship opportunities. There is no need to have a business idea yet, since the key idea of the course is to learn self-knowledge, personal competencies, interests and aspirations how to contribute in the future.

Building business through creativity and collaboration

As an entrepreneur you want to make an impact! Breaking the rules and questioning the “we have always done it this way” type of mindset are key skills to all aspiring entrepreneurs. How to learn this? While the traditional business education provides you with tools and skills for business model skills and financing; the Entrepreneurship II module employs a creative method to learn and experience entrepreneurship through art.  Art is used as an illustration, as materials for case studies, and as a place to work and develop business oriented thinking.
