About the course

A master programme balancing between theory and know how

Entrepreneurship has become an increasingly popular term that can be evidenced in different spheres of the economy and society. More commonly, entrepreneurial behaviours are associated with new start up ventures where risk, ownership and management are combined to exploit new market or technological opportunities. But such activities can also be seen in corporate, social, public, civic, community and small business contexts to reflect organizational efforts to sustain competitive advantage, uniqueness and novelty. This is partly because the twenty-first century is characterized by a fast moving, competitive and global economy. Sustaining a competitive advantage requires that individuals, companies and nations are able to anticipate and stimulate (rather than merely manage) change.

Due to the fact that the course consists of a highly diversified and international group, all participants, including me, are benefiting from the cultural and personal experiences. The working atmosphere in such a group is on the one hand very hard but therefore also increasing your cultural and team working skills an a very high level. The international Professors in the course are all experts in their fields and many of them are also able to share some practical knowledge with the students as most of them are Entrepreneurs and not just purely academics, which make the theory by far more valid in terms of applicable advice.
