Entrepreneurship & SME Management

Are you ambitious and result-oriented? Are you able to interact with others and are you open to exchanging and receiving feedback? Are you excited by the prospect of blended learning rather than just papers and books? Then the specialisation in Entrepreneurship and SME Management could be right for you. The specialisation is part of the master's programme in International Business and is for students interested in setting up and managing small and medium sized businesses. The specialisation combines both management theory and practical experience with the existing opportunity either to set up your own student company or to assist the management team of a real-life entrepreneurial venture. The programme is a genuine exercise in ‘learning by doing’.
