International Entrepreneurship course lasts 7 weeks in block 1. We will use different teaching methods to understand what entrepreneurs do, develop your own business proposition (in a team) and come up with a proposition for an existing company (individually). 

We will focus on several questions:
  1. What is entrepreneurship? 
  2. What types of entrepreneurs are there? 
  3. What is an "entrepreneurial opportunity"? 
  4. What do you need to be successful as an entrepreneur?
  5. How to set up a successful business?
  6. How to discover or create an opportunity? 
  7. How do validate an idea and look for potential customers?
  8. How to create a business model canvas?

We will meet twice a week for hands on tutorials, where we will discuss the prescribed literature (and a movie) in the form of debates and puzzle exercises and work on the business ideas. Tutorials will be highly interactive and will require thorough preparation.
