Intrapreneurship (Advanced)


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This 5 ECTS module serves as an extension to the Intrapreneurship Summer School, designed to inspire students to engage in deep reflection on their experiences and knowledge gained from the foundational module. The overarching objective of this advanced module is to provide students with the same learning objectives as the Intrapreneurship (Foundation) module, but with an additional platform to refine their entrepreneurial skills and competences within a more rigorous, scientific, and analytical context.

Throughout this academic journey, students will embark on a transformational exploration, honing their intrapreneurial prowess and gaining the capacity to navigate the complex interplay of theory and practice in the dynamic corporate landscape. This newfound confidence is a direct result of the rigorous academic grounding and practical insights that this module aims to provide.

The culmination of this module is the creation of an academically crafted project, meticulously woven with a blend of theoretical depth and practical applicability. This project serves a dual purpose, combining the critical components of a traditional business plan with a broad spectrum of theoretical foundations, thereby fostering a holistic understanding of intrapreneurship. It is through the process of developing and presenting these projects that students will not only gain a deeper understanding but also the confidence to articulate and pitch innovative business ideas to colleagues and corporate partners with poise and conviction.

In essence, this module not only encourages intellectual growth but also empowers students to emerge as proficient intrapreneurs, better capable of navigating the intricate terrain of innovation and entrepreneurship. The newfound confidence in presenting new business ventures will be a valuable asset as students go on to make substantial contributions in the corporate world.
