WHAT IS Corporate entrepreneurship (CE)?

Corporate Entrepreneurship is a cross-disciplinary entrepreneurship course open to 9th semester students (3rd semester on the Masters level). The course enables enrolled students with an entrepreneurial skillset, opportunistic networking and fosters innovation and developing/evolving corporate ideas. This course is aimed at all would-be entrepreneurs, interested intrapreneurs and students interested in business development processes.

The course is a combination of lectures and an internship, working within a real case company. During the semester, the students will be going through an entrepreneurial process developing new business activities for an established company. To facilitate the business development, the course uses both a theoretical framework and business development guidance to support and raise the chance of success. Hence, the fundamental factors from venturing a business within an existing company will be taught, but more importantly, you will experience a hands-on process in entrepreneurship.

The Corporate Entrepreneurship programme is offered as both a 30 ECTS and 10 ECTS course, so you can spend time and effort on the process of developing the business activities.
