What you will learn?

The MSc Strategic Entrepreneurship provides you with the entrepreneurial skills that are necessary to succeed in the global market. The program is tailored for action-based learning. This means that theories of entrepreneurial strategies are combined with first-hand experience on the entrepreneurial process either in the form of starting a new venture or renewing an existing organization. We support you in the process of becoming an entrepreneur by fostering your critical and creative thinking, improving your decision-making skills in the context of uncertainty, and enhancing your interpersonal skills (including cross-cultural communication and negotiation). Such a skillset is in high-demand in the current job market, which emphasizes the hiring of self-driven individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit.
