The course aims to familiarize students with the overall process of creating a new business, and the concepts, practices and tools of the entrepreneurial world. It is intended for students to: (1) acquire core knowledge and concepts of entrepreneurship to act entrepreneurially in a more effective way, (2) increase their motivation and confidence in their ability to successfully undertake entrepreneurial projects, and (3) reflect on the positive role that entrepreneurship (in all forms) plays in society. Classes are highly interactive and based mainly on discussions, groupwork and case studies. A large part of the learning will be from sharing opinions and insights, and students are encouraged to participate actively in these exchanges. Students are also expected to come to class prepared.
