The programme takes on both a theoretical and practical approach:
The combined theoretical and practical approach embraced by the Strategic Entrepreneurship profile provides you with an in-depth knowledge of contemporary research and business practices, as well as frameworks, skills and tools arising from hands-on experience, required for entrepreneurial activities for change and progress locally, nationally, and internationally.
The teaching and learning process is organized as an interactive combination of practice-related competence development and theoretical sense-making through traditional teaching methods, role-play, group work, student presentation, discussions, written reflections and creative development. In some courses the instruction is planned as a mix of classroom teaching or supervision and/or home assignments based upon digital video teaching. Furthermore different workshops will be held during the semester.
