Intrapreneurship - intro course across studies


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The purpose of the module is to give the student an introduction to theories and methods within intrapreneurship and thus create the basis for an intrapreneurial mindset.

Throughout the module, the focus is on working actively with tools and methods to initiate and facilitate value-creating processes. The module builds on an interdisciplinary foundation, thereby promoting an understanding of and ability to be part of interdisciplinary project groups in order to create innovative solutions. There is also an additional focus on developing an understanding of individuals and organizations - and the interaction between these in intrapreneurial processes.

Other themes included in the module: problem understanding and identification, innovation processes and culture, business cases and strategy, presentation techniques including pitching and validation as well as collaboration with external stakeholders.

Thereby, students across studies achieve a common theoretical starting point for continuing to work with intrapreneurship within their specific subject areas.
