Semester Project incl. Executing Entrepreneurial Ideas

2022/2023

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Both in an existing organisation and as an individual entrepreneur bringing innovative ideas into life requires planning, management, resources, competencies and environments conducive for taking the idea forward.

This module provides an understanding of how to pursue opportunities but also on learning and practising this. The module adds an applied dimension to several entrepreneurship topics. While introducing a number of instruments for business planning the module also provides a critical perspective on business planning and on the rationale for promoting entrepreneurship. Moreover, the module introduces some of the most important framework conditions for university-based entrepreneurs. Finally, as ‘There is nothing as practical as a good theory’ we will also deal with some of the core theoretical issues in entrepreneurship.
