What is NEW VENTURE CREATION?

New Venture Creation is a cross-disciplinary entrepreneurship course open to 9th semester students. The elective equips enrolled students with an entrepreneurial skillset, opportunistic networking and fosters innovation and new business start-ups. This course is aimed at all would-be entrepreneurs, established entrepreneurs and students interested in business development processes.

The course is designed as a live case environment, where the cases being analysed are the actual, real-time experiences of students going through the entrepreneurial process of starting a company. To facilitate the development of ventures, the course embarks on both a theoretical framework and business development guidance to support and raise the prospects of success. Hence, the fundamental components from venturing a business will be taught, but more importantly, you will gain a hands-on experience in entrepreneurship

The New Venture Creation programme is offered as both a 30 ECTS and 10 ECTS course, so you can spend time and effort on building - or further developing - a start-up.
