Omschrijving This course is one of the obligatory courses of the SB&E track within the MScBA and introduces the students to the specific challenges and issues that entrepreneurs face when starting a new business. The course provides insights into the basic skills required to start a new venture from a theoretical, scientific point of view. The following topics are dealt with: the nature of entrepreneurial opportunities and how they come in existence, selecting promising ideas and formulating a business model, understanding and developing networks of stakeholders, entrepreneurial finance, growth and, finally, corporate entrepreneurship.
This course consists of a mixture of conventional and flipped-class lectures, augmented by case study teaching, guest lectures and workshops. Before each lecture, it is expected that the students prepare the obligatory tasks and readings and research and select at least two additional scientific, peer-reviewed articles that add to the discussion and provided background reading. The aim of each lecture is to use the provided and additional literature researched to develop a conceptual model of the topic under scrutiny.
