Spring teaching

You are given a systematic understanding of the process of new venture creation in the private, public, and not for profit sectors.

It starts with the conception of an idea and leads to the creation and management of an entrepreneurial venture.

In this module conceptual foundations are matched with practical training to enable you to formulate and explore entrepreneurial ideas and opportunities through the development of business plans.
